Cit. in Society as a Rank Requirment

I’ve tried searching the forums before asking cause I am sure I am not first but I can’t seem to find anything so I apologize if I’ve missed something in advance.

I had a couple scouts come up to me last night that are going to need to cit. in society badge. They were looking at what badges they have left for Eagle and currently in scoutbook it shows all 4 Cit. MBs as being required. We’re pretty sure we read that Cit. in Society is required and then 2 of the remaining 3 are required.

Is this still true and will scoutbook be updated to reflect that requirement? Or are all 4 Cit. MBs required?

Again, I apologize if this has already been asked I swear I searched before posting.

@banning - It is required as of the July 1 date… if they will be finished before that you will see a note on their eagle rank page with instructions.


oh yea, good call…

I am remembering what I read right though about Cit. in Society being required and then 2 of the remaining 3? The scouts are asking cause some of them already have 2 of the remaining 3 and are wanting to know if they need to do the 3rd one. None of them will be Eagles before July 1st

After July 1 all four Citizenships are required if not all Eagle Requirements are done - except EBOR and Application - there will be 14 Eagle Required slots at that point
