Requirements pages for Ranks, Awards, and Merit Badges have a somewhat formal structure. Award requirements are usually listed first under the '''== Award requirements ==''' heading. The next section will most likely be '''== Notes =='''. The page should end with '''== Help with these requirements ==''' and '''== External links =='''. Additional headings can be inserted as needed if they would be of considerable benefit. Based on the above, the following four headings will be used most often with any additional headings inserted between the first two and the last two:

Additional notes on page formatting

Requirements pages for Ranks, Awards, and Merit Badges have a somewhat formal structure. The first thing placed at the top of the page is the link to an appropriate image file (see Adding an Image below). Award requirements are usually listed first under the == Award requirements == heading. The next section will most likely be == Notes ==. The page should end with == Help with these requirements == and == External links ==. Additional headings can be inserted as needed if they would be of considerable benefit. Based on the above, the following four headings will be used most often with any additional headings inserted between the first two and the last two:

[[Image:50miler.jpg|thumb|50 Miler Award patch. This patch is not worn on the uniform but may be worn on a jacket or patch vest or placed on blankets, backpacks, or other personal equipment.]]

== Award requirements ==

== Notes ==

== Help with these requirements ==

== External links ==
