第一位鹰级童子军亚瑟.爱尔得瑞得 (Arthur R. Eldred)
1912
821

你是不是美国男童子军或女童子军的一份子呢?或者你是否曾经想知道童子军是做什么的呢?男童军可能会希望有一天能够得到鹰级童子军的奖项,因为这是美国男童军最高的阶级。 

1912年的821日,来自纽约州海畔地区的亚瑟.爱尔得瑞得成为美国赢得鹰级童子军的第一位年轻人。这个以个人表现为评判标准的奖项,只颁给所有男童军中表现最好的前4%。自从1911年起,已经有超过一百万个男童军晋升到这个阶级了,包括前总统杰洛.福特,以及电影导演史蒂芬.史匹柏等。你知道成为鹰级童子军之前要先获得多少表现优异的奖章吗?


Are you a member of the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts of America, or have you ever wondered what they're all about? A Boy Scout might hope to someday achieve the award of Eagle Scout, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America.

On August 21, 1912, Arthur R. Eldred of Oceanside, New York, became the first young man in America to earn the Eagle Scout award. This performance-based award goes to only about four percent of all Boy Scouts. More than one million Boy Scouts have now earned the rank since 1911, including former President Gerald Ford and film director Steven Spielberg. Do you know how many merit awards it takes to become an Eagle Scout?
