Merit Badge Trivia

Last month, I wrote that in 2013, 17,814 merit badges were earned by Boy Scouts in the Central Florida Council (CFC) and asked the following questions:

  • What was the most earned merit badge in the CFC? Swimming (810)
  • What was the most earned non-Eagle Merit badge in the CFC? Fingerprinting (511)
  • What was the least earned merit badge in the CFC? Drafting and American Business (1)

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).
