Hi WikiTree Team and Leaders,
Can we please have a sticker created for those that have attained the highest Honor in the Boy Scouts of America to add to the profile of those who reached this lofty goal? Thank you!

David, did this ever get done?

You would need to have some sort of image, but it looks like you can't use images from the BSA site without their "express written permission." We could possibly get that, but it would be something that took a little time. The Wikimedia commons image attribution is kind of vague. (Any other uses of this image, on Wikipedia or elsewhere, may be copyright infringement. Certain commercial use of this image may also be trademark infringement.) So, we'd have to contact BSA or simply use another image.

Hi Natalie, I have not done anymore with this as to creating the sticker. Both our son and oldest grandson are eagle scouts and their names are inscribed in the monument in granite. I have been meaning to go by the Boy Scouts headquarters and ask for permission just seems I never get the time. Let me see if I can find a way to ask online on their website. I also need to ask our son what his troop number was and the date he received the Eagle award since it has been so many years ago.
I do think it would need to be something written to the BSA so that they could give us written permission.
Natalie, I have sent an email for information as to our son and grandson's dates and troop numbers as this is need on the Boy Scout site then I will write, call or go to the Scout Headquarters and ask for permission soon as I can. Then I will post here or send you a PM.
Sounds good, David!
For BSA Eagle a generic fleur-de-lis could probably be used, with the words "Eagle Scout" on the sticker.

I know for Girl Scouts all permissions go through  However, for Girl Scout Gold Awards a generic daisy (the flower without the stem) could probably be used, since that is a also a symbol of the Girl Scouting movement.

Great minds think alike, Jerry! smiley

If you are waiting on a third vote for this I'm in.
Thank you, Joelle!
It would be a fitting memorial for my father who continued in Scouting helping many boys grow into manhood following his example of service to others.

Just an FYI that a parent category named Scouting exists when I connected Bear Grylls a few years ago

Hi, Peggy!

You might want to start a new G2G post for this so that it doesn't get lost here. 

If you follow the instructions here, it will get the attention of folks who can help you with your request. :-)

Agreed.  I would like to see stickers created for both BSA Eagle Scouts and GSUSA Gold Award Girl Scouts.
