Samaniego Earns Gold Eagle Palm Award


Today, I officially earned my Gold Eagle Palm Award. Which is the second of the three palms that are awarded the three are Bronze, Gold and then Silver.

Below are the detailed requirements for earning Palms. Remember palms are not a rank, but an award you earn after becoming an Eagle Scout.

After becoming an Eagle Scout, you may earn Palms by completing the following requirements:

  1. Be active in your troop and patrol for at least 3 months after becoming an Eagle Scout or after the award of last Palm.*
  2. Demonstrate Scout spirit by living the Scout Oath (Promise) and Scout Law in your everyday life.
  3. Make a satisfactory effort to develop and demonstrate leadership ability.
  4. Earn five additional merit badges beyond those required for Eagle or last Palm.**.
  5. Take Part in a Scoutmaster conference.
  6. Complete your board of review.

As of today, I have about 11 months left in my scouting career and looking forward to helping make difference in my troop and in other scouts.
