Girl Scout Gold Award & Eagle Scout Merit Badge Project Guidelines

The Meridian Parks and Recreation Department is a proud supporter of Girl and Boy Scouts who wish to complete Gold Award and Eagle Scout Award projects within Meridian’s city parks.

We are able to partner with only a few of the many scouts who apply each season. Your project proposal is most likely to be accepted when:

  • The project will have a lasting legacy in our city.
  • The project is not too simple or too complex- it meets the Scouting organization's requirements and can be completed with limited parental or adult involvement.
  • The project proposal includes detailed information about project materials and expenses.
  • The scout communicates professionally (in phone calls, meetings, emails, etc.) with the city coordinator.
  • The project proposal is submitted well in advance.

Staff Appointed Projects - There are no Staff Appointed Projects available at this time. Please submit your original proposal here ».
