Eagle Projects and the Cooking Merit Badge[To Top]

2013-10-10 @ 11:00, Submitted by Michal Dluginski

The question has come up as to when a Scout must earn the Cooking merit badge if he is already working on his Eagle Project. Here is the answer from the Advancement News edition from June-July 2013.

Cooking Merit Badge to Be Required for Eagle Scout Rank

Effective January 1, 2014, Cooking merit badge will be required for the Eagle Scout rank. Regardless of when a Scout completed the Life rank or began working on Eagle, unless he fulfills all the requirements - with the exception of his board of review - before January 1, 2014, he must earn the Cooking merit badge to attain Eagle.


Also note, if he begins work on the Cooking merit badge in 2013 and does not complete it prior to January 1, 2014, he may complete the badge using the pamphlet for the Cooking merit badge that is available now, and not the new one that will become effective on January 1, 2014.
