Jostens will now help Eagle Scouts® celebrate and recognize their significant achievement with customized and personalized rings under license from the Boy Scouts of America®. Eagle Scout is the highest rank that can be achieved as a Boy Scout and only 5% of all Scouts have attained the award since its inception in 1912. The Eagle Scout ring features a Red, White and Blue top with the Eagle Scout® Boy Scouts of America® logo. The ring sides feature the universal Eagle emblem and is personalized with the Eagle Scout's name and year the award was achieved.
The Boy Scouts of America has also licensed Jostens to produce Wood Badge® rings to recognize adult volunteers that have completed the Boy Scouts of America Wood Badge advanced leadership training. The Wood Badge® signet ring displays the Wood Badge shield on the ring top, the universal symbol on one side and one of eight mascots on the other side.
"The Eagle Scout award is an icon of youth achievement and we are eager to play a role in the recognition process," said Mary Langerud, Specialty Markets, Jostens. "We are also proud to help salute the great Scouting volunteers that support youth leadership development."
All custom rings licensed by the Boy Scouts of America can be designed and ordered online at Jostens.com/boyscouts and are available in a wide selection of precious and non-precious metals. Each ring is covered by Jostens' Lifetime Limited Warranty which includes free re-sizing for the original owner of the ring for the life of the ring.
Eagle Scouts of all ages can become a member of the National Eagle Scout Association (NESA) to network with other Eagle Scouts and stay connected with the Scouting program. Information is available at www.scouting.org or by contacting a local Boy Scouts of America council office.
