Recognition and Court of Honor

Immediate Recognition

Troop 1525 recognizes rank advancement immediately after the successful completion of the Board of Review. Scouts receive patches for rank advancement, except for the rank of Eagle, at the regular meeting after the completion of the Board of Review. Formal recognition of rank advancement usually takes place at the next Court of Honor.


Court of Honor

Courts will be held approximately three times a year, generally in September, January, and May. The cutoff date for final completion of advancements, i.e., BoR, and awards to be presented at the Court of Honor, will be the week prior to the Court of Honor.

A scout's family is encouraged to attend Courts of Honor.  These support the scouts' efforts and helps to recognize their advancement.  Parents are presented with a ribbon, and a miniature pin representing the rank earned for the Scout to place on the ribbon.

Eagle Courts will be held on a day selected by the Eagle Scout.  The Eagle Scout is responsible for the coordination and cost of his court of honor.
