Cooking Merit Badge options (Scouts can still use 2013 requirements)

 Cooking Merit Badge became an Eagle required Merit Badge this year. BSA has announced that a Scout can use either the requirements in place before 2014 or the new requirements. This option will only be available during 2014. Starting January 1st, 2015, only the new requirements will be recognized. This allows Scouts that were currently working on the Merit Badge to continue without changing their plan of action. It also allows your unit to get one more year out of any existing Merit Badge books. Both books will be available through 2014.
