[Boy Scout Requirements]  [Merit Badge Resources] [BSA Advancement Resources]

Boy Scout Requirements Book 2009Boy Scout requirements change from time to time and are detailed in the BOY SCOUT REQUIREMENTS book which is designed to bring together the requirements for merit badges, rank advancements, and Eagle Palms, and to highlight recognitions for special opportunities. The requirements for merit badges, ranks, and Eagle Palms published in that book are effective January 1, of the published year and remain effective through December of the published year.

Merit Badge Counselors should check the:
Merit Badge Counselor Information, No. 34405 (turn in with application)

Worksheet for Building a Merit Badge Counselor List, No. 4439
Merit Badge Counselor Guide

Occoneechee Council Merit Bdge Counselor (turn in with application)

National Merit Badge information web
Merit Badge and NOVA Counselor Council Registration Policy

BSA policy is that a Boy Scout may use requirements in effect when he started a Merit Badge or he may choose to use new requirements if they change while he is working on the badge.  THIS IS THE SCOUT'S CHOICE!  There is NO TIME LIMIT on completing the badge other than reaching age 18 (without a National waiver) unless the badge requirements state a specific time limit.  Accordingly, unit leaders and counselors should ensure the requirements books applicable to all years for their registered Scouts stays in the unit library until it is no longer needed for those Scouts working under "old" requirements.

From time to time, BSA updates Merit Badge pamphlets.  The pamphlets are printed and distributed when published.  If published BEFORE the requirements book is updated with any NEW requirements, BSA policy is that Scouts may choose to use the NEW requirements in the updated pamphlet or use the requirements in effect in the current requirements book.   

Boy Scouts can invite friends using Web site e-mail for First Class Requirement!
The e-card, a new feature available to Scouts and leaders on the www.thescoutzone.org 
Web site helps a Scout complete new First Class requirement to invite a friend to troop meeting or activity.  To use the e-card, a Scout goes to www.thescoutzone.org, clicks on “Tell a Friend,” enters his name and his friend’s name and e-mail address in the designated boxes.  He selects the action images he thinks his friend would be interested in doing, then chooses music and message. After previewing the e-card, he sends it to his friend.


EAGLE / SUMMIT / QUARTERMASTER THANGS!
