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

Additional badges may be offered as classes fill and counselors become available. 

Scouts must bring a Merit Badge Application "Blue Card" signed by their Scoutmaster to each class.  Scouts are responsible for returning the cards to their unit when complete. 

Scouts should wear their Class A uniform and only be in designated areas of the Sears AT Building.

All troops should furnish one volunteer per five scouts at the event to assist in classroom sessions.


This will be an all day event with two sessions; morning and afternoon. Some badges will require both sessions in order to have a positive experience.

The Geology class will also include Mining in Society, so both badges can be earned.  When signing up for Engineering, you will have the opportunity to earn the NOVA and/or Super NOVA awards with additional preparation.

A pizza lunch will be provided to all students, volunteers and counselors.
Counselor Information
At check-in in the morning of the event, you will receive a class roster.  Please mark any scout that is absent as a "no show" on your roster.  At the end of your class, please also fill in the roster with either requirements met (per scout) or requirements not met if that is easier.  Please make sure that it is legible and understandable for the person that will enter the information into the merit badge website.

Thank you so much for volunteering your time, it is greatly appreciated!
