The merit badge blue card serves many purposes:

  • Certifying the unit leader has helped the Scout locate an approved counselor.
  • Tracking requirements completed
  • Checking that the badge was recorded and presented
  • Serving as a record for the Scout, counselor and unit that the badge has been earned

Here’s a basic look at the process of earning a merit badge and how the blue card is used along the way.

The official name for the blue card  is “Application for Merit Badge”  and it consists of three  parts. The approving counselor keeps one in case questions are raised later.
The applicant submits one part to his unit leader and keeps the other for his personal records.
