How to fill out a blue Card


Nothing creates more questions here at Scoutmaster Bucky than Blue Cards.  Scoutmaster Bucky is proud to offer a comprehensive Merit Badge Application (Blue Card) Instruction Guide - aka "How to Fill Out a Blue Card". This document is a guide for both Youth Scouts and Adult Scouters and Merit Badge Counselors alike. The guide was put together to help anyone and everyone involved in the handling of Blue Cards in understaning the proper steps and process, as well as each person's roles and responsibilities.

(Click here to download Scoutmaster Bucky's - How to Fill Out a Blue Card Document).

Let Scoutmaster Bucky know what you think.  Was this guide helpful? Any questions, clarifications, or corrections? Send me your questions and watch this section for updates.

Excerpt from 1918 electricity merit badge pamphlet

 

"There is only one rule in the world, and it applies to all professions, and that is that you are expected to 'make good'.  No excuses are allowed in this school of life, and the only way to make good is to keep faith.  This the reason I like the idea of the Boy Scouts - because of their secure notion of being responsible to society.  They are responsible to the people who live around them - to help maintain the standards of order and fidelity upon which the community depends."


(signed)     Woodrow Wilson

President of the United States of America
