This Eagle Scout infographic pretty much says it all

Yesterday, we got scientific proof that Eagle Scouts are awesome.

Today comes the visual evidence.

After the jump, don’t miss a stunning infographic that answers the question: Who exactly are these 2.1 million Eagle Scouts?

The question — and answer — come at a great time as we celebrate 100 years of the Eagle Scout Award!

  1. Dont know who makes these infographics but they are a great way to distribute a lot of information in a small, eye-catching space. Im going to use the “report to the nation” graphic for some upcoming recruiting events and the “philmont” graphic to recruit for next years council contingent.

    It would be great to have a single page here on the site (even better, on that links to all of the graphics. Searching for “infographic” gets most of them but didnt find a couple of the high adventure base graphics.

  2. Proud to be an Eagle, I know there has to be a way to get a replacment of my Eagle card. Can you give me a starting point?

  3. Is this infographic and the others for the High Adventure bases available in a hi-res file so we can print a poster of them to hang in our meeting room?

  4. Proud of my Eagle Scout Ryan Lundy who completed his BOR on 12-16-11 and whose project was designing and building a People’s Garden as a gift from the US embassy to the National Science Museum in Seoul, South Korea. Keep supporting all of our scouts!

  5. Bryan, not sure who to ask this of so I’ll put it out here. Is there any way to update the Eagle distribution graphic to instead be based on a population density instead of simple raw numbers? I would expect CA, UT, TX, and NY to lead the way for total numbers, but how would they compare as a a measurement of density? UT would still top the list I’m sure, but what about the less populous states?

  6. How do I become a follower of this blog, Brian. We met at Jamboree when I was working with John Ingrim from Boy’s Life Magazine.
    We met in the trailer one afternoon. I have our photo. Your magazine is awesome.

  7. Isn’t this information out of date? I believe it’s 6% of scouts now attain the rank? Any idea on how to get this poster with updated information?
