Discontinued Merit Badges
|“|| [18.104.22.168] Discontinued Merit Badges
Scouts may not begin working on discontinued merit badges. If actual effort has already begun by the time discontinuation becomes effective, and work actively continues, then the badge may be completed and can count toward rank advancement, but presentation of the badge itself will be subject to national inventory. It is a misconception that discontinued merit badges may be earned as long as the patch and requirements can be found.
