Selected Achievements for 2017

Eagle Scouts

Last year’s 202 young men earned the distinction of being awarded the Eagle Scout award. This recognition is the culmination of years of effort to hone leadership skills, show proficiency in hundreds of skill areas represented by the merit badge program, and providing community service at each rank.

Community Service

103,749 hours of service to the community was provided by our Scouts bringing to life the Scout Slogan, “Do a Good Turn Daily.”

Ellison Onizuka Day of Exploration

On April 29, our Scouts reinvented the 106-year-old Makahiki tradition as a STEM festival focused on serving the community. Named after the Hawai’i-born Eagle Scout and astronaut who died on the space shuttle Challenger in 1986, the day featured a wide range of engaging, hands-on STEM activities for boys and girls. Free and open to the public, the inaugural event attracted 7,312 people to Honolulu’s Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, making it the state’s largest STEM gathering. Similar STEM happenings were organized on Hawai’i Island and Kauai.
