Merit Badge News

Boy Scouts can now earn the Digital Technology Merit Badge (MB).  This merit badge replaces the Computer MB which will no longer be available.  Scouts that have earned the Computer MB can also earn the new Digital Technology MB.

Merit Badge Trivia

Last month, I wrote that in 2013, over 2,110,800 merit badges were earned by Boy Scouts and asked the following questions:

 What was the most earned merit badge?  Answer = First Aid

What was the most earned non-Eagle merit badge?  Answer = Rifle Shooting

What was the least earned merit badge (not in Sustainability and Programming which were released in the summer)?  Answer = Bugling

Here are some Central Florida Council (CFC) specific merit badge trivia questions.  Boy Scouts in CFC earned 17,814 merit badges:

What was the most earned merit badge in the CFC?

What was the most earned non-Eagle Merit badge in the CFC?

What was the least earned merit badge in the CFC?

We know about the numbers of merit badges earned in the Council, because Scouters report their advancements in Internet Advancement.  Please join their ranks!

Important Eagle Scout Information

As a reminder, all Eagle Scout candidates should contact Lynette Dukes, Eagle Registrar, prior to beginning to fill out their Eagle Scout Application.  Her email address is:  Lynette.Dukes@cflscouting.org

She can provide pertinent information in aiding in the correct filling out of the Application.  Current candidates must use the 2014 version of the Eagle Scout Application (Form 512-728).

An Eagle Scout Board of Review is required to take place within 90 days of the candidates 18th birthday.  Therefore, the Central Florida Council Advancement Committee voted to require Eagle Scouts to submit their completed applications to Lynette Dukes upon their 18th birthday for verification.  The Eagle Scout candidate should remember that planning is a large part of their Service Project and they should plan the submittal of their Eagle Scout Application accordingly.
