I am trying to learn about the requirements as I try to help this young man navigate through the process.
He has a few ideas about what he wants to do, but he was asking about the Hornaday project counting towards the Eagle scout project. After looking at the requirements for the Hornaday award, it seems to me that an Eagle Scout project can count towards one of the Hornaday projects, but not necessarily the other way around. (Hornaday may not necessarily count towards an Eagle project.)
At face value, this makes sense, since the Eagle project has it's own unique approval process, when compared to the Hornaday approval.
I would like to inform the scout that if wants to use a project idea that will count for both, to write up the plan as an Eagle project, and then consult with a Hornaday advisor to determine if the project can also be used towards the Hornaday award.
Is this the correct approach?

How many boys work on projects of this sort and earn these badges? As far as I know, I have yet to meet one in at least 15 years of being with our troop.
