Merit Badge Weekend 2017
A very important message:
Effective August 1. All merit badges above the required number of electives that are earned and recorded before your Eagle board of review will count towards immediate recognition of palms on your board of review date. Yes, you will qualify for your palms immediately. There is no longer a 3 month waiting period for each 5 extra merit badges earned before you achieve Eagle, however, the 3 month rule does apply after your Eagle board of review.
This makes it a great idea to work on electives now! It's a great time to try something new and fun!
