About this Event

University of Iowa Virtual Merit Badge University - March 13th, 2021

 

This sign-up is for Troop 42 members only.  Scouters from other troops can get more information from the Hawkeyebsa.org calendar.

 

The University of Iowa Merit Badge University is being held VIRTUALLY on Saturday, March 13th from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM and is a great opportunity for Scouts to work on merit badges in a focused, group setting. Some badges can be completed in a day, while some will require additional outside work. These sessions can offer Scouts an opportunity to work on some merit badges not typically offered in the troop or at summer camp. Mr. Ryan is coordinating this event so contact him with any questions by email at: jmryan2000@yahoo.com. You are invited to sign-up for this MBU by registering on our troop Eventbrite page.

 

Here is a listing of the merit badges offered at this MBU:

  • Aviation - ALL DAY pre-reqs: Buid a plane
  • Citizenship in the Community * - ALL DAY pre-reqs: 3, 7, 8
  • Citizenship in the Nation * - ALL DAY pre-reqs: 2a-c, 3

 Additional merit badges may be added in the future.

Scouts may select up to 2 half day merit badges (1 in the morning and/or 1 in the afternoon) or 1 all day merit badge. Scouts should specify their top 3 choices and enter the merit badge names in order of preference in the Eventbrite registration page. Many merit badges have prerequisites that must be completed and brought to the MBU. Scouts will need to bring proof of completion of the prerequisites to the MBU.

 

Mr. Ryan will login and attempt to secure your spot as soon as you register on Eventbrite but it isn’t official until you have funds in your account to cover the fees. All merit badge sessions cost $10 each whether they are half day or all day. Please review the merit badge information carefully for details and prerequisites. The deadline for sign-up is Thursday, Mar 4th, and you must have funds in your Scout account by this date, to cover your registration. Questions about your Scout account can be emailed to treasurer@troop42.com.

 

Zoom links will be provided to participants in advance of the MBU.

Seats are limited and some fill up fast!  Sign up now - don’t miss this opportunity!
