A merit badge sash is like a trophy case you can wear.
Each tiny circle represents one of the 136 interest areas a Boy Scout has conquered.
But what restrictions are placed on merit badge sashes? In what order should they be sewn on? Is there a minimum or maximum number of merit badges a Scout may wear on a sash? Can a Scout with a ton of merit badges wear two sashes? What about wearing a sash folded over a belt? And can anyone help mom or dad sew these things on?
I’ve got the answers — well, to all but that last question.
