  1. Will you post a picture of the Scouting magazine centennial patch? Since I wasn’t selected to receive one is there anywhere we can buy one on line?

    Thank you.

    • Hi, Don. The image on this page is a sample of the patch. However, the final product will have a red outline surrounding the patch.

      Currently, there’s no plan to sell the patch, but we’re planning several upcoming opportunities for readers to win patches. Please stay tuned! And thank you for your interest.
