Court of Honor

In the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), a Court of Honor is a ceremony held to present Scouts with awards they have earned. This is a major component of the Scouting Program, Recognition for accomplishment. Exact procedures vary between the different scouting organizations and also by troop and over time. In the American Venturing Program, it is known as a Court of Award, while in Sea Scouts, it is known as a Bridge of Honor.

For Troop 35, please note the following about Courts of Honor

Eagle Scout Court of Honor

The rank of Eagle Scout, the BSA's highest rank, is typically presented in a special Court of Honor organized for just this purpose. This will often honor a single scout or a few scouts who have earned the award contemporaneously. Generally, no other awards are given out at this ceremony other than the Eagle. Details are usually organized by the Scout's unit in consultation with the Scout and his family. The Eagle Scout Court of Honor, though held on a local basis, is considered a National Court of Honor because, even after the Scout passes his Eagle Board of Review, the national BSA office must approve the Eagle Scout application.
