Merit Badge Completion Process

Posted on Jun 3 2021 - 7:46am
In order to ensure that your merit badges are properly recorded for your advancement and  in the troop's official records in Scoutbook, please send a confirmation email with documents described below to the Advancement team using this email address,  
Currently merit badges can be earned in a variety of ways.  Please see who should send the email and what documentation should be sent.  These include the following:
  1. If you worked with a Merit Badge Counselor who used a blue card to track your completions, send a copy of the completed blue card.
  2. If your Merit Badge Counselor used Scoutbook or the Scouting app to record your completion of requirements, request that your counselor to send a confirmation of your completion of the merit badge
  3. If you earned the merit badge at an outside function (Merit Badge University, Training Academy, etc.) you should send a copy of the blue card or report that was given to you.
  4. If you earned the merit badge in a previous troop, please send any records or copies of blue cards.
The Scoutmaster will also receive a copy of this email so you do not need to add that email address to the TO: or CC: line of the email.
The process to use Scoutbook while earning a merit badge will be covered in a future Troop meeting.
