Last week in Merit Badge Madness, upsets abounded as Scouts chose their favorite badges from four categories: Eagle required, Outdoor, STEM, and Career. This week, champions emerged from the categories, and one matchup is currently duking it out to clinch a spot in the overall semifinals.
If you’re way into the competition and have been voting daily (or maybe you’ve heard Scouts talking about it), check out the highlights from this week.
Merit Badge Madness Category Finals’ Results
- Eagle Required Final – Swimming knocks Hiking out of the competition.
- Outdoor Final – Wilderness Survival emerges victorious over Rifle Shooting.
- STEM Final – Space Exploration soars over Aviation.
- Career Final – It’s still neck and neck between Fish and Wildlife Management and Engineering. Select your favorite before voting closes in a few hours!
