Eagle Scout Good Citizenship Award
The Marine Corps League Good Citizenship award was designed to congratulate and give recognition to members of the Boy Scouts of America who have fulfilled the requirements and obtained the highest rank of Eagle Scout. This award serves to recognize the skills that a Scout has mastered to become an Eagle Scout and acknowledges that these skills are also held in very high regards by the Marine Corps and Corporations throughout the United States. The ceremony is usually held in conjunction with his local troop’s Court of Honor Ceremony.
Procedure to obtain a Good Citizenship Award Certificate
When the Scout has determined the date, time and location that the Court of Honor is to take place, they may then contact the Detachment Scout Coordinator using the form below.
