The Boy Scouts of America Mining in Society Merit Badge
For scouts attending this summer's Boy Scout Jamboree, check out the the Society for Mining and Metallurgy Inc. (SME) booth which will feature their Mining in Society Badge! The badge was launched at the 2014 SME Annual Conference and Expo in Salt Lake City, Utah and has been a success ever since. A recent press release from SME notes that, "through this merit badge program, the [Boy Scouts of America] has implemented a multifaceted program that highlights the important role mining and minerals play in our quality of life and national security." There is information available here for individuals interested in becoming a merit badge counselor.
