We have had one or two similar situations, i e the project was cancelled
not due to the Scouts fault. We simply let the scout do another
project, there was no problem at the troop, district, or council level.
The eagle requirement says; ....plan, develop,and give leadership
to others......While this requirement does not SPECIFICALLY say to do
the project, that is clearly the intent. You can argue that you can't
give leadership to others without actually carrying out the project, and
IMHO this is the correct opinion.
The requirements for Eagle are supposed to help prepare a boy for
life in the real world, and sometimes the real world bites you where you
sit and a lot of hard work is for naught. I feel sorry for the boy since
it is obvious that he put a lot of effort into his project, but it
appears that he will need to start over from square one.
