Now a hot topic, the Web Site as an Eagle Project.
For starters, my son LED such a project, and was successful.

So you know where I am coming from and where I am going.
All of the negative comment I have seen on this topic has revolved around
the assumption that such a project is "too small," "can be done by one
person" or the scout has "no opportunity to show leadership." I'm sorry,
but it has been demonstrated otherwise. As always, it depends on the
INDIVIDUAL project and how the scout designs it to incorporate the
demonstration of leadership skills.
Rejecting any project idea out of hand because YOU could do it by yourself
is, IMNSHO, ridiculous. Anyone who thinks like that should not be in the
position to approve or disapprove projects.
