The Boy Scouts of America has created the Spirit of the Eagle Award as an honorary posthumous recognition for registered youth members who have lost their lives through illness or accident. It is offered by the National Court of Honor as a final salute and tribute in celebration of the recipient’s life, and publicly recognizes his or her contributions to the mission of Scouting.

An application can be found at http://www.scouting.org/scoutsource/Awards_Central/SpiritoftheEagle.aspx. A unit committee must complete and submit it to the local council within six months of the member’s death. The application is reviewed, approved, and processed by the local council where the certificate, No. 921070, is ordered from National Supply
