  • The work MUST be the Scouts work; parents should help but let the scout earn it.
  • It's not the badge that's important, but what is learned by completing the requirements.
  • One or two word answers on the worksheet are not acceptable.
  • The scout should clearly state what he means without the need for interpretation.
