BLUE CARD PROCESS FOR MERIT BADGES:
- Merit Badge Counselor will provide Scouts Blue Cards at the end of each merit badge session.
- Scouts are responsible for filling out the information on the cards
- The Merit Badge counselor will record the completed requirements on the Applicant's record portion, especially when it is a partial. The Merit Badge Counselor will sign the card when all requirements are completed.
The Merit Badge Counselor portion of the card can be torn off and held by the Counselor or their circular file system.
All Blue Cards are then turned over to the Scouts to be presented to Mr. Farley, the Scoutmaster for Unit Leader Signature.
- All Completed/ fully-signed Blue Cards are then returned to the Scout, and then are presented by the Scout to Mrs Glorieux, our Advancement Chair, to be entered in Scoutbook. The Advancement Chair is the only person who should be entering advancement in Scoutbook.
