A list of participating merit badge counselors is included with this flyer. Scouts (not parents!) who wish to earn merit badges at the Fair MUST register online (below) no later than November 15 to determine what they must do in advance of the fair order to fulfill all of the requirements on January 6.
Scouts can register for up to two merit badges unless noted otherwise on this flyer and will receive notification after November 15 regarding acceptance and pre-Fair requirements. Scouts must have a blue card signed by their Scoutmasters for each merit badge to be earned. Some merit badges, including Collections, Citizenship in the Nation, and Personal Management, require advance preparation. Interested Scouts should contact the counselors for these badges AS SOON AS POSSIBLE to determine their eligibility.
Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
