I agree with Chris completely!!!
The requirement can easily be understood that the project must be
completed before it can be considered for Eagle, however, as Chris pointed
out, THIS project is about developing leadership, not about providing the
physical service personally.
The latter aspect, which is taken in service projects prior to the Eagle
Service Project are intended to foster a sense of responsibility in the
youth toward his community. The former, for Eagle, is intended to take
that sense of responsibility and apply it in a role that instills greater
character and leadership.
If this project is completed under the candidates leadership, i.e., his
directions come from him, and the merits of the project meet the
requirements, I would say he has overcome even greater challenges than was
ever intended in the Eagle Service Project. Ergo, he probably has more
than fulfilled the requirements.
This is personal opinion. I don't doubt we'll get some input from people
with more authoritative infornation, but the responsibility for final
approval of the _completed_ project lies essentially with the review. If
they accept it......
