Complete all unfinished Merit Badge work prior to starting an Eagle Project
  1. To start a Merit Badge the Scout must have a "Blue Card" signed off by the Scoutmaster. At the conclusion of the Merit Badge, the Scoutmaster will sign it and give the appropriate 1/3 to the Advancement Chair.
  2. The scouting year is from February to February. A Scout becomes a second, third, or fourth year scout as he passes the anniversary of his joining date.
  3. All prerequisites must be completed prior to starting a merit badge.
    • Citizenship in the World requires completion of both Citizenship in the Community and Citizenship in the Nation (Troop prerequisite)
    • Lifesaving requires completion of Swimming (Troop prerequisite)
    • Camping requires 20 nights of camping experience prior to starting the merit badge. Only one summer camp event may count toward this requirement. (National requirement)
  4. Scouts must bring the following to each merit badge class session: the merit badge booklet, a signed blue card, a notebook, a pen, and a worksheet printed from www.usscouts.org/mb/worksheets/list.asp Merit Badge books are recommended for all merit badges. This is because the merit badge books have the answers! The books also contain other interesting information.
  5. Should a Scout wish to work ahead (for example 2nd year Scout taking a 3rd year badge), he must petition, in writing, to the Scoutmaster and Committee Chair. The petition should include the reasons for the exception and evidence that the Scout is mature enough to complete the work. The petition will be reviewed by both the Committee Chair and Scoutmaster; their decision on the exception request will be final
