There has been much discussion of the imminent change in the requirements for Eagle Scout – namely, that Cooking Merit Badge will be required on all Eagle Scout applications submitted to the Council for certification (prior to the Board of Review) after January 1. This increases the number of required badges to 13, with 8 elective badges for the same total of 21.
