Attention Scoutmasters and Eagle Candidates in Sapona District

The Sapona District Board plans to continue virtual reviews for the foreseeable future. We will continue to review and make a decision about returning to in-person review sessions on a month to month basis. Plenty of notice will be given to leaders and Eagle candidates if changes are made in the review process. At this time we are not reviewing Star or Life candidates but may consider it in the future.

The Sapona District Eagle Board of Review has developed a process to conduct virtual reviews for Eagle Candidates and Eagle projects only using the Zoom Conferencing program by appointment only beginning at 6:30 pm on day of review (See district calendar for BOR dates). Review periods will be 45 minutes for Eagles and 30 minutes for Eagle Project approval.

All Candidates should appear in Full Official BSA Uniform (aka Class A).

Once appointment time is set, candidate will be notified  of the Zoom meeting ID and appointment time by the Review Board by email. Candidate will also receive a copy of the District Board Policy and Guidelines to help prepare for the review.
