CITIZENSHIP IN THE NATION MERIT BADGE
The Grand Canyon Council, in partnership with the Arizona House of Representatives, is pleased to announce we have scheduled a unique Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge Event. We are excited to have put this program together and hope that with your help this will be a great advancement and learning opportunity.
This unique event will have scouts actually go through the legislative process as they take a proposed bill from committee all the way through a vote on the Arizona House of Representatives Floor. The entire event will include discussions about our legislative process and allow the scouts to make sure that they are debating bills to ensure that they do not come into conflict with the Constitution as well as other branches of government.
Due to the unique nature of this event, registration will be limited to 60 scouts. All scouts applying must be at least 1st Class
Date: Saturday October 13, 2018
Time: 9:00 to 1:00 pm
Doors open at 8:30 for registration. All scouts need to be present by 8:50 am.
