Blue Card

390px-MeritBadgeBlueCardThis is where merit badge work is recorded. Before beginning work on a badge, the Scout gets a blue card signed by the Scoutmaster or the Advancement Chair. At the final meeting with a merit badge counselor, the blue card is presented and signed by the counselor, who keeps 1/3 of the card. The Scout keeps 1/3, and 1/3 is turned into the Advancement Chair who records it and makes sure the Scout receives the badge at the next Court of Honor. Keep these cards safe and in one place. The Scout might be asked to present them as documentation for the Eagle rank. (See Advancement)
