Changes to Number of Merit Badges Required for Eagle

Postby Reasonable Rascal » Wed Jul 09, 2014 8:40 pm

Over the decades the number of merit badges that were required for Eagle have changed both up and down, along with the actual badges that were required. Cooking has been re-added after an absence of how many years, for instance, and Safety used to be a required MB for Eagle.

Does anyone happen to have information on what the requirements were for different eras/years? When I received my Eagle it was 24 MB's vs. the present-day 22 (21 just last year).

Thanks!

It's still 21. Cooking replaced an elective.

Thank you, sir. My Google-foo was a bit off.
