Whereas, scouting is a movement that challenges, inspires and guides young people towards high achievements and high values as expressed in the Scout oath, law, motto and slogan, and

Whereas, the rank of Eagle is the highest rank in Boy Scouting, and

Whereas, attainment of Eagle rank requires mastery of difficult challenges in diverse areas, and
