Dear Eagle Scout:
Congratulations on earning the rank of Eagle in 2020! It is an outstanding achievement and one you will cherish the rest of your life.

As you may know, Three Fires Council (TFC) holds an annual recognition event for all Eagle Scouts and their parents. The event will be held on May 15 and 16, 2021 at Camp Big Timber. You would only attend one night. We are looking for an Eagle Scout to represent the Class of 2020. One scout will be chosen to deliver a speech on each night plus will earn a $500 scholarship. You must have had your Eagle board of review in 2020 to be eligible.

If you would like to apply to represent your class and become a candidate for the scholarship, please do the following:

  1. Schedule a time to present your speech with a small committee of TFC volunteers. Register here  by March 28, 2021. Audition times will be offered on April 10, 2021 via Zoom. You will be notified of your audition time and sent a log in link after registration closes.
  2. Prepare a 4-to-5-minute speech relating to your experiences in scouting and what it means to you to be an Eagle Scout. It should include some type of charge or challenge to the Class of 2020. The speech does not have to be memorized, but you should give it to your parents or friends in advance of your audition and have it as practiced as possible
  3. On April 10, log on 10 minutes before your audition time. You’ll be in the waiting room until the reviewers are ready to hear you. You should be in your field (Class A) uniform and on a laptop or PC with a camera and microphone.

If you have questions as to the process, audition, or scholarship, please contact Marti Jernberg at (847) 337-0903 or mjscouter@aol.com.
We look forward to celebrating with you at the Gathering of Eagles and hearing your speeches. Again, congratulations!

Yours in Scouting,

Marti Jernberg
