Don't stop at Eagle! You still have 100 Merit Badges to go!
and Silver Palms
The Eagle Scout Rank requires that you earn 21 of the 121 Merit Badges. After earning the Eagle Scout Rank, you can continue to earn Merit badges and Eagle Palms until your 18th birthday. Currently the maximum number of Eagle Palms you can earn is 20, worn as six silver palms and one gold palm. You would need at least 3 months for each palm for a total of 60 months, or five years after earning Eagle. To earn all 20 palms you would need to earn Eagle by your 13th birthday.
A Scout who has earned the following numbers of merit badges wears the number of palms indicated (assuming he has been active for the appropriate periods since earning his Eagle):
|Merit Badges||Bronze Palms||Gold Palms||Silver Palms||Adult Knot|
Eagle Palms requirements
After becoming an Eagle Scout, you may earn Palms by completing the following requirements:
You may wear only the proper combination of Palms for the number of merit badges you earned beyond the rank of Eagle. The Bronze Palm represents five merit badges, the Gold Palm 10, and the Silver Palm 15.
*For Varsity Scouts working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "troop" with "team" and "Scoutmaster" with "Varsity Scout Coach." For Venturers working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "troop" with "crew" and "Scoutmaster" with "Crew Advisor." For Sea Scouts working on Boy Scout requirements, replace "troop" with "ship" and "Scoutmaster" with "Skipper."
** Eagle Palms must be earned in sequence, and the three-month tenure requirement must be observed for each Palm.
*** Merit Badges earned any time since becoming a Boy Scout may be used to meet this requirement.
