Mining in Society Merit Badge

It is with great pleasure and pride that SME celebrates the Mining in Society Merit Badge! The reinstatement of a mining-related merit badge with Boy Scouts of America will introduce boys to the mining industry in a fair and fun way as they are making decisions about their educational directions in pursuit of their future careers. Whether or not the youth who will be earning the merit badge ever have employment directly related to mining, they will certainly be the decision-makers of tomorrow. It benefits everyone that they are provided with factual, non-biased information as they consider what will be the tough issues in this county in years to come.

We encourage SME members and others in mining-related employment to help promote the Mining in Society Merit Badge.
