I was wondering how can my son get a blue card signed by his scoutmaster so he can work on some merit badges?
the scoutmaster can digitally sign it in Scoutbook
Someone with Edit Advancement or Full Control (parent or unit leader) first should add the Merit Badge t the Scout’s profile in Scoutbook. After that, the Scoutmaster or designee should go to the Merit Badge and add a date to the Initial Unit Leader Signature field.
From the COVID-19 FAQ:
Q: Does a Scout need a hard copy of a Blue Card when working on merit badges?
No. Since the introduction of Scoutbook, the BSA has offered Scouts two ways of recording merit badge requirement completion: The Blue Card and Scoutbook. Both remain authorized methods to record merit badge work. Scoutbook is a part of the BSA Internet Advancement system, which means that entering an advancement record in Scoutbook is the same as entering it in Internet Advancement. Anyone with a BSA member ID automatically has access to a Scoutbook account through their my.scouting account.
