At this week’s Troop meeting after reviewing final details for the DC trip, Scouts will earn the BSA Cyber Chip which covers cyberbullying, cell phone use, texting, blogging, gaming, and identity theft. Earning this badge is required for Scout and Star Scout ranks.

The requirements differ by grade range and each Scout must complete an assignment with their parent or guardian to receive the award. The homework is listed below. Please complete this in the next week or so. We will complete the other requirements at the meeting March 15th.
