Victory Eagle Board of Review Information

How to prepare to present an Eagle Scout Project Proposal or Eagle Scout Final Project to the Eagle Board of Review.

  1. Present a copy of the project book to the Eagle Board at the monthly Roundtable which is held on the first Thursday at the L.D.S. Church, 7420 Huebner Rd. We start at 6:30 PM. The Scout should be accompanied by an adult leader and should be in full Class A uniform.
  2. The book will be briefly reviewed and the Scout will be advised as to the acceptability of the book and positive suggestions will be offered as necessary.
  3. The Scout and mentor will be notified by email of any necessary changes or additional information needed in the book.


The Victory Board of Review meets each month on the second Thursday at the Patriot Heights Retirement community, 5000 Fawn Meadow. The official Flag ceremony starts at 7:00 PM. It is recommended to arrive at 6:30 PM to sign in and prepare to present.

The Scout will be dressed in full Class A uniform and must be accompanied by at least 2 adult leaders and his mentor to present the Scout to the Board of Review.

The Scout will be introduced to the Board by his mentor.

The mentor may stay and witness the review but may NOT participate in the review until the review is completed and the Scout is excused from the room, then the board may ask questions and the mentor may participate in the review. Then the Scout will be advised of the Boards decision on his project.
