  • An additional merit badge - Scouting Heritage Merit Badge - to be offered at Boy Scout Merit Badge Day in January Saturday, January 12, 2013 1:00pm, Fairlawn Church of the Nazarene Register online at jayhawkcouncil.org Scouting Heritage Merit Badge, created in 2010 the year of BSAs 100th Anniversary Celebration, will be offered at Merit Badge Day in January for the first time in 2013. Scouts registering for the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge are required prior to attending Merit Badge Day in January to do the following: ____1. Purchase the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge Book, (two Scouts from the same Troop could share one Scouting Heritage Merit Badge Book). ____2. Read the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge Book if sharing book, each Scout must read book. ____3. Print the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge Workbook from www.MeritBadge.org. Each Scout participating in the class must have his own workbook pages printed from the internet. ____4. Make notes on the workbook pages for discussing the merit badge requirement with your counselor during the class on January 12 notes do not have to be full and complete answers. ____5. Unless you have attended a BSA National Jamboree, World Scout jamboree, National BSA high- adventure base, or visited Adventure Base 100 in 2010 and can write a short report about the experience, for requirement 4, the Scout must, before December 20, e-mail the National Scouting Museum in Irving, Texas, specifically Joseph.Connole@Scouting.org (Joe works at the museum Thursday to Monday.) to request the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge packet offered by the Scouting museum. Bring the packet and a report on the role of the Scouting museum to the January 12 class. ____6. Learn about the history of the unit where you are a BSA member and interview two people associated with your Troop. Note the requirements for the interviews one person from the past and one from the present and the requirements for the report for requirement 5. The report should be created prior to and briefly shared with your counselor at the January 12 class; but, can be presented after the January 12 class. ____7. Bring your collection for requirement 6 to show and tell your counselor about each item in your collection. (To share your collection efficiently with your counselor and others in your class you may want to, as the merit badge book suggests, preserve your memories with protective sleeves and by jotting a sentence or two describing each item. A display board or notebook might make it easy to share with others.) ____8. Prepare a game to show to your counselor for the merit badge requirement 7. Depending on the number of games prepared, some games from the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge class will be shared with Cub Scouts at Cub Scout Night at the Museum, perhaps on a rotating basis. Since Cub Scout Night at the Museum is an indoor event only indoor games can be shared with Cubs at the museum. Outdoor games can be prepared and shown to your counselor. ____9. Interview, for requirement 8, three people over the age of 40 who were Scouts and be prepared to share what you learned with your counselor. This list of 9 points is a checklist of tasks to complete before and bring with you on January 12. The list is explanation supplemental to, not additions to, the Scouting Heritage Merit Badge requirements. llm,11/27/2012
