If you are having trouble registering scouts, carefully read the information on the help tab.
If you send an email that does not include the information we need to help you, it wastes time and will get promptly deleted.
Test drive the new site (in progress) at New Meritbadge.Info.Leave comments at our Facebook page.

Notice!!! Meritbadge.Info will switch to the new site with BSA validation Friday morning March 13th.

If you wish to start using this site today, click here to launch

Adults must enter their BSA Number, DOB, First and Last name as it appears on their BSA ID card. We will query BSA and get back an answer. At this point one of three things can happen:
1) Your registration is verified - you can continue using normally
2) You are not registered or your registration has lapsed - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login
3) You are registered but your YPT has expired - your prior rights are revoked and you get the read-only screens that you see before your login

You have had at least two months to get yourself registered and complete YPT training. If you feel your validation is not working, send us an email with the four data items listed and we will validate your entry.

We have no control over what is on file at BSA. If everything matches your BSA ID card, there should be no issues. If not, your validation will fail.

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? 

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

Sponsor Information

To start and get the event password, go to then "Event Registration" for MBU to indicate the number of Scouts to pay for. You can go back in and add more later. Your email response will have the password. If you add Scouts, later, go to this site first to sign them up for a class, and then back to to pay again. If you want to change classes for a Scout, add to the new class first before deleting from the old class. 

Check the event Facebook page for updates, Quapaw Council Virtual Merit Badge University 2020. Continual and last minute changes will be posted on FB.

 Registration will open Thursday, April 9, 5:00 pm (it will be changed at that time). Metalwork (blacksmith) is the only actual hands on location. It is only 3 Scouts BSA and 2 counselors in an open air setting. Be sure that your parents approve.

Registration is $5 per Scout to pay at (Event Registration). Your Scouts BSA should have their Cyber Chip card from  We need a registered adult or parent to sit in on the classes for YP. Most presentations will be with Zoom and some using Google Classroom. A gmail account is needed for this, probably a personal one, not a school one.

   Have 1 or 2 adults register your Scouts. There must be 1 or 2 adults  linked to your troop for registration (BE SURE ALL HAVE YOUR CURRENT
DISTRICT NAME IN YOUR PROFILE) site before you can add a Scout.  You
must have your BSA number, YPT date and DoB the first time at Be sure that you have toggled down to the Quapaw event
toward the top of the registration page (this may have changed). SCOUTS DO NOT NEED A ZOOM ACCOUNT IF THEY USE THE LINK AND PASSWORD PROVIDED BY THE COUNSELOR. 

The email address  posted with your Scout will be the one that will receive the final information on the time, date and log in information (use an adult, parent or older Scout as you wish). Some classes may be on May 9, others other times and times and perhaps multiple sessions.  Be sure the email is a
correct one, or I can't send a mass email.
