Bryan on Scouting released the newest merit badge rankings for 2014 and the number one spot might shock you. Not only did the most earned merit badge knock down a five-year reigning champ, but it also beat out the second place by nearly 19,000 badges. After the winner joined the Eagle-required list January 2014, the amount of Scouts earning the badge sky-rocketed to 99,908. With approximately 2.1 million badges earned in 2014, that’s not a bad ratio.
Here’s a hint: Second place went to First Aid, but who took the win?
