Boy Scouts Video Games Award

The Boy Scouts of America has introduced an award (though not a merit badge) for video games, available to Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts. After you earn the Belt Loop, here are the requirements for the Academic Pin:
1. With your parents, create a plan to buy a video game that is right for your age group.
2. Compare two game systems (for example, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Nintendo Wii, and so on). Explain some of the differences between the two. List good reasons to purchase or use a game system.
3. Play a video game with family members in a family tournament.
4. Teach an adult or a friend how to play a video game.
5. List at least five tips that would help someone who was learning how to play your favorite video game.
6. Play an appropriate video game with a friend for one hour.
7. Play a video game that will help you practice your math, spelling, or another skill that helps you in your schoolwork.
8. Choose a game you might like to purchase. Compare the price for this game at three different stores. Decide which store has the best deal. In your decision, be sure to consider things like the store return policy and manufacturer’s warranty.
9. With an adult’s supervision, install a gaming system.

They are all governed by the Boy Scouts of America, but a Boy Scout is a graduated Cub Scout. Kind of like graduating from grade school to high school.
