Registration will be opened to units outside of the Uwharrie district on February 22, Class sizes are limited so register early! Many classes have prerequisites which must be done if you wish to complete the badge during class. Some classes also have age and/or rank requirements. Unless indicated otherwise, all other requirements for the Merit Badge should be covered in class. For ALL classes, Scouts are required to READ the Merit Badge Pamphlet. Also, Scouts are required to BRING a SIGNED Merit Badge Registration form to class. All Scouts and leaders are expected to be in full Class A uniforms. Class Registration Notes Meritbadge.info will only allow one merit badge per class. o In some cases we are offering 2 merit badges per class. o The following classes offer 2 merit badges --- Crime Prevention & Finger Printing Salesmanship & Entrepreneurship o If your scout registers for these classes you will receive both merit badge application forms for that class. 2 of our Citizenship in the Community classes are geared for a specific county. o You will see the county name in the room number field. o Scouts from Davie should take the class for Davie County and Scouts from Davidson should take the class for Davidson county o Scouts from outside both counties can simply select any one of these classes but please select the class with no county designation first until it fills up.

7 Automated Reporting Your unit will receive the following reports after college registration closes on March 3, These reports are designed to make the college run efficiently and accurately. Examples of each report are included at the end of this document. To receive reports please make sure you have registered on with your correct address. Merit Badge Applications Print all the MB apps and sign your name on the Unit Leader line. Signing the app means that you agree the scout is ready to take the class and has completed all prerequisites. On the Bus ride check with the scout and circle any prerequisite that was not completed. Give the MB App to the Scout and make sure he signs the application and fills in the top section. This is a good test to see if the scout brought writing devices! Explain to the scout that he is to hand over his MB app to his instructor and leave it there. Explain to the scout that he must not lose the application form. No credit for MB without a completed form! Instructors will sign the MB App form and return it to the registration desk after class. You will pick up all MB apps from the registration desk at the end of the day.
