May Merit Badge Spotlight: Citizenship in the World & Space Exploration


“ Scouts who earn the Citizenship in the World merit badge will discover that they are already citizens of the world. How good a world citizen each person is depends on his willingness to understand and appreciate the values, traditions, and concerns of people in other countries. ”

Citizenship in the World is one of the required merit badges for the World Conservation Award for Boy Scouts.

Space Exploration merit badge: "Space is mysterious. We explore space for many reasons, not least because we don't know what is out there, it is vast, and humans are full of curiosity. Each time we send explorers into space, we learn something we didn't know before. We discover a little more of what is there."
