Scouts will have the opportunity to earn Citizenship in the World merit badge, but more importantly have a chance to interact with over 100 international Wartburg College students from 50 different countries. This will be an interactive discussion in large and small groups, so scouts will need to review the materials in their merit badge book or PowerPoint presentation. This will be a fun event that allows individual scouts, patrols, or even a troop to learn more about the cultures and values in the world.
Scouts must bring the following for discussion:
- 3 b requirements completed in a 1 page report ready to discuss
- 4 b requirements completed in a 1 page report ready to discuss
- 4 c requirements completed and ready to discuss
- Merit badge blue card signed by their Scoutmaster
- Scouts must wear their scout shirt
- Bring a notebook and pencil/pen
- Be ready to have fun, discuss, and learn!!
Event is made possible by our host Wartburg College International Student Program which is celebrating Culture Week- March 19 through March 25.
Outcome Scouts who earn the Citizenship in the World merit badge will discover that they are already citizens fo the world. How good a world citizen each person is depends on his/her willingness to understand and appreciate the values, traditions, and concerns of people in their countries.
