Emergency Preparedness
Game Design
Graphic Arts
Indian Lore
Mining in Society
Personal Management

  1. Locate the pre-requisites for your merit badge on the council website at All pre-requisites appear in bold type.
  2. Create a Microsoft Word document (file) titled with your name and that of the merit badge, for example: LawMeritBadge-StevenSmith
  3.  Determine those pre-requisites which require you to “write” or “list” something to complete it and prepare them for emailing as outlined here.
  4. Pre-requisites that ask you to bring a ‘kit’, a ‘model’, ‘drawing’, ‘photos’ or a ‘verification’, for example, do not need to be emailed, but rather brought along with you to Merit Badge College.
  5. Type each ‘written’ merit badge pre-requisite and corresponding answer in the Word document. Answers should be composed by you. Counselors will not accept language that you have simply copied and pasted from a reference source.
  6. Once you have completed all written pre-requisites for the merit badge, email them in a single Microsoft Word document, as an attachment, to the following address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Make sure you identify who you are and what Merit Badge the submission is for in your email message or subject line. Please send all requirements for the same merit badge together in one email attachment, do not send each requirement separately. However, send separate emails for different merit badges. You will receive a confirmation email back that we have received your submission. If you do not receive this receipt confirmation email, you should re-send!
  7. Print out and bring with you hard copies of the written work that you emailed. Be prepared to submit this to your counselor when/if asked.
  8. You must e-mail your completed pre-requisites to the above address no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. You may not be able to earn your merit badge at Merit Badge College unless your counselor receives your pre-requisites by January 7th.
