Scouts can help test a merit badge resource app

You found a cool link with useful information your Scouts could use for the First Aid merit badge. You could send it out in an email blast or post it on the troop’s social media page, but as time marches on, the link likely would get lost in those busy channels.

If only there was a source that would collect and prioritize helpful information in a handy digital format.

The BSA is seeking Scouts to beta-test a new app designed to do just that. It’s called the Merit Badge Helpers app.

Users can post links connected to merit badge requirements. These can be videos, social media permalinks, webpages — anything that Scouts could find helpful. Users can rate the usefulness of each link, increasing its ability to be seen. Every link will be reviewed before it goes live. For more information, follow this link.
