Scouting websites, particularly those by Filipinos or for Filipinos,

The site must not be created for the sole purpose of displaying
almost perpetual static information about the group or Scouting

or Leadership Roster, etc.). It must contain timely information
such as, but not limited to, upcoming activities, recent

The website must be online for at least one-(1) year with
evidence that the pages are updated regularly and as necessary.
All accredited websites are given the opportunity to display their accrediation using an custom accrediation image that may be used as a link to provide proof of their accreditation. Accredited websites will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure they continually satisfy the guidelines.
Recognizing that the success of the Merit Badge
Center would never be possible without the direct and indirect
contributions of individuals or groups. The Certificate of Appreciation
is awarded to people or groups who have contributed in great
lengths bringing the website to what it is today.
In recognition of noteworthy action(s) by an
individual or a group that, in the opinion of the Merit Badge
Center, exemplifies the values of Scouting embodied by the Scout
Oath and Law. The Merit Badge Center does not actively seek individuals or groups on its own and rely on nominations or recommendations coming for various individuals. All submission are reviewed thoroughly. Submit your nomination to Commendations@scoutcenter.net.
To receive the commendation, an individual
or a group must satisfy the following guidelines:
The individual or group must have demonstrated action(s)
that exemplifies the points of the Scout Oath and Law. It
is important to remember that the commendation is being
directed to the demonstrated action(s), it bears no importance
who the group or individual is. The group or individual
need not be successful in achieving whatever they aimed
to achieve, so long as the purpose and objective behind
such action(s) is commendable. The Merit Badge Center shall
not engage in judging any perceived motivation of such
action(s) in cases where there is a perceived political
motivation. The action however must be deeply rooted in
the foundations of moral principles and reason. Action
for action's sake is empty and action done irrationally
is not worthy of commendation. It is equally important
that, while satisfying some points of the Scout Oath and
Law, the action does not violate some other points of the
Oath and Law. Purpose and objective is not enough for commendation
if the method(s) or action(s) taken to achieve such purpose
or objective is flawed.
- There must be proof of such act or action through
newspaper accounts or other material that will provide substance
to the claim of such an action and the foundation behind
the action if necessary.
