We established four Divisions – Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venture|Sea Scouts|Explorers, and Adults – and three sections within each – Scouts in Action, Nature, and Service. In total we received 151 submissions and awarded a First, Second, and Third place in each Division along with an overall winner. Judging took place at the Program Conference on October 16, 2021 with all attendees given the opportunity to view the submissions and vote their choices.
We thank all those who participated and want to acknowledge the high quality and creativeness of the submissions. Over the course of the coming months, we’ll share those images on the Council’s Home page.
First, try to connect the Scout and counselor in Scoutbook. If that is successful, the counselor is registered and qualified. If unsuccessful, go to the counselor’s home council and search for their Advancement Administrators. Most will have an email address for either the Council Advancement Committee or Professional Advisor. Send an email asking if the counselor has been registered and qualified for the merit badge(s) in question and the status of their Youth Protection Training. Ask California councils if the counselor has completed AB506 training and LiveScan. The unit leader’s “blue card” signature verifies their counselor credentials verification.
