Fifteen-year-old Dallas Wright, like a lot of teenagers, turned to social media when he needed to find some inspiration for his Eagle Scout service project. In order to attain Eagle Scout status, the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America, scouts are required to plan, raise funds for and lead a service project for a nonprofit group in their community. According to the Boys Scouts of America, only about 7 percent of Boy Scouts reached the rank in 2012.
