GOOD NEWS

Meritbadge.Info lives!

Jamie Leonard, A fellow scouter in Oskaloosa Iowa and David Landriam-Shrewsbury from NE Georgia introduced us to the Chief Scout Executive who then introduced us to Vijay Challa and Norbert Harasimiuk, the BSA National IT team.  We met with Vijay and Norbert Friday Jan 10th and had a highly rewarding discussion.  Thanks to everyone involved, we will not be shutting down meritbadge.info.  If you know Jamie or David, thank them for leading the charge to make this happen.  

We are making some changes.   Starting March 01,  2020, every user must have a valid BSA ID to manage events, register scouts, and update counselor pages.   BSA does background checks on all registered adults and we will follow their lead before granting access.   

Why are we doing this?
1. To provide higher security and validation of all adult users.
2. To clean up the mess we've accumulated via 15 years of poor user data entry.  

How will we do this? 
When you update your profile, you will be required to provide: Last name, first name, BSA ID, and your Date of Birth.   The website will submit this to BSA to validate your account.  BSA will return your Council, District, Unit, and the date you completed Youth Protection training.  We will periodically validate this access level with BSA and update your registration status based on the data returned.

What should you do? 
Login to https://my.scouting.org/ and copy your BSA ID Number then update your profile on Meritbadge.info.  Let others in your unit know they should do the same.  We are giving you 2.5 months advanced notice to make this work.

Description

FLAG Ceremony @ 8:15 both Saturdays



The objective of the Tonkawa District Merit Badge College is to provide an opportunity for Scouts to earn merit badges on their journey to acheiving Eagle Rank. Scouts may sign up for four merit badges that will be offered during four sessions: Session 1 (8:30 – 9:50); Session 2 (10:00 – 11:20); Lunch Break (11:20 - 12:00); Session 3 (12:00 – 1:20); and Session 4 (1:30 - 2:50).  



Scouts must be engaged in a merit badge class at the college to be in attendance, there will be no “open slots” without a parent picking up the Scout and bringing him back later, if needed.



Class sessions are for both Saturdays and most will require some off-site work (homework) and/or field trips in order to complete all of the requirements. Scoutmasters must approve all merit badges for which their Scouts register.  Remember that attendance alone may not result in all requirements being completed. Scouts must participate and demonstrate that they have met each requirement with the merit badge counselor.



A Scoutmaster, committee member or YPT adult must be in attendance from every unit whenever a Scout from their unit is at the college.



Lunch will be served both Saturdays and is included in the price, if your Scout has specific dietary needs plan to bring a sack lunch. Lunch will consist of pizza or hot dogs, chips, water and more during the lunch break.


Counselor Information

Merit badge counselors should email Rudy Kamman @ tonkawaadvancements@gmail.com with specific questions. A class roster and workbooks for each participant will be provided.



Every merit badge counselor will need to provide the following:




  1. Completed merit badge registration form - http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/34405.pdf

  2. Copy of completed youth protection training (YPT) card

  3. Copy of BSA registration card or completed adult application - http://www.scouting.org/filestore/pdf/524-501.pdf


Unit Sign-up Instructions

Units will be allowed to register if they have provided MB Counselors for this event.  Contact Rudy Kamman tonkawaadvancements@gmail.com for further information.



Each Scoutmaster will register their troop or designate one person to register all Scouts using the MERITBADGE.INFO system.  Registration will begin January 18th at 11:59 pm Central Time.  Scouts are limited to only two Eagle required merit badges.



When signing up scouts please enter THEIR contact email address, not yours. Merit badge counselors email the scouts information about their merit badges and it will go to you if your email is entered for them.




Scouts will be provided a three-ring binder that contain merit badge workbooks, pens, and pencils. Scoutmasters will be required to provide Blue Cards for each Scout, with the front completed and signed by the Scoutmaster.


Payment Instructions for the Unit

The cost per Scout is $15.00 which includes a three-ring binder, merit badge workbooks, pens, pencils, and lunch. Each Scout must pay $15, even if they only sign up for one or two merit badges. Payment will be due at check in on February 01.
