Eagle Promise

Eagle Scout Candidate ___________, I charge you to enter the Eagle Scout Brotherhood, holding without reservation ever before you, the ideals of honor and service.

By repetition of the Eagle Scout Promise before your fellow Scouts, you will become an Eagle Scout. Though the words you use may be similar to those by which you joined Scouting, today they will mean more than they could have meant at any time in the past.

When you pledge yourself on your sacred honor, you will be sealing your eternal loyalty to the code of the Eagle Scout, with the words which closed the Declaration of Independence.

Scouts attention! Audience please stand.

Candidate, Scout sign! Repeat after me:

I reaffirm my allegiance ....
to the three promises of the Scout Oath ....
I thoughtfully recognize ....
and take upon myself ....
the obligations and responsibilities ....
of an Eagle Scout. ....
On my honor, I will do my best ....
to make my training and example ....
and my status and my influence ....
count strongly for better Scouting ....
and for better citizenship ....
in my troop, ....
in my community, ....
and in my contacts with other people. ....
To this I pledge my sacred honor.

Two! Audience please be seated.

By the authority vested in me by the National Court of Honor of the Boy Scouts of America, it is my privilege and pleasure to pronounce you an Eagle Scout. May the Oath you have taken remain graven in your heart always.
