The launch of the Mining In Society Merit Badge was a grand success! Now help us continue to support the merit badge.
SME volunteers and staff have worked long and hard with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to develop the requirements, pamphlet, badge design and other collateral materials so that Boy Scouts across the United States will be exposed to the mining industry as they earn this new merit badge.
