  1. Locate the pre-requisites for your merit badge on the council website at www.nepabsa.org. All pre-requisites appear in like this.
  2. Create a Microsoft Word 97-2003 document (file) titled with your name and that of the merit badge.
  3. Determine those pre-requisites which require you to “write” or “list” something to complete it. 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.
  4. Type each ‘written’ merit badge pre-requisite and corresponding answer on 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
  5. Once you have completed all written pre-requisites for the merit badge, e-mail your Word 93-2007 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 e-mail. 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.
  6. You must e-mail your completed pre-requisites to the above address no later than 5 p.m. on Tuesday, January 7, 2014. You will not be able to earn your merit badge at Merit Badge College unless your counselor receives your pre-requisites by January 7th.

Please contact the Scout Service Center at (570) 207-1227 x225 if you have any questions about this pre-requisite process. Thank you.
