PUBLIC SPEAKING MERIT BADGE

 

The Public Speaking Merit Badge is a great companion merit badge to work on at the same time as your Communications Merit Badge as some requirements may be shared between the two merit badges.

If you like the Public Speaking Merit Badge, consider also doing Communications.
