Eagle Award: The highest attainable rank in Scouting, earned by only four percent of all Boy Scouts. In addition to earning at least 21 merit badges and being a field-tested leader of peers in his Scout troop, Eagle Scouts give leadership to an extensive service project that benefits a community organization.
