Wagon Wheel District Merit Badge University
March 4, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Wagon Wheel District Merit Badge University provides scouts the opportunity to earn up to 2 merit badges, receive a lunch and an event patch. This year’s Merit Badge University Theme is Heritage. The Nebraska Sons of the American Revolution (NE SAR) Color Guard will open the event with a Flag Ceremony. Members of the NE SAR will teach the American Heritage and Genealogy Merit Badge. A Bellevue City Councilman will teach the Citizenship in the Nation Merit Badge. International Students from Bellevue University will share their diversity of culture by participating in the Citizenship in the World Merit Badge. A journalist from the Bellevue Leader will be reporting on the event and teach the Journalism Merit Badge. It is our hope that this year’s Wagon Wheel District Merit Badge University will build connections with the community of Bellevue and connect citizens of Nebraska’s First City to their rich heritage and history. The Merit Badge University will provide the Boy Scouts an engaging educational opportunity by learning leadership and citizenship skills from the leaders and citizens of the Bellevue community.
