Eagle Palms are worn by youth members on the Eagle Scout rank patch, or on the ribbon of the Eagle Scout Medal.  You may wear only the proper combination of Palms for the number of merit badges you earned beyond the rank of Eagle. The Bronze Palm represents 5 merit badges, the Gold Palm 10, and the Silver Palm 15.


After successfully completing your Eagle Scout board of review and being validated as an Eagle Scout by the National Service Center, you are entitled to receive an Eagle Palm for each additional 5 merit badges you have completed before your Eagle Scout board of review. For these Palms only, it will not be necessary for you to complete any of the requirements stated below.

  1.  After becoming an Eagle Scout, you may earn additional Palms by completing the following requirements.
  • Be active (registered) in the Boy Scouts of America for at least three months after becoming an Eagle Scout or after the last Palm was earned.
  • Since earning the Eagle Scout rank or your last Eagle Palm, demonstrate Scout spirit by living the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Tell how you have done your duty to God and how you have lived the Scout Oath and Scout Law in your everyday life.
  • Continue to set a satisfactory example of accepting responsibility or demonstrating leadership ability.
  • Earn five additional merit badges beyond those required for Eagle or last Palm.
  • While an Eagle Scout, participate in a Scoutmaster conference.

Please Note:  The requirements listed above became effective October 2017.  (As noted on:  REQUIREMENTS FOR EAGLE PALMS)
