Scripps-Mesa District Advancement
Committee (Updated as of October 2013)
1 - Cinematography Merit Badge is Now Moviemaking
Effective immediately, Cinematography is now Moviemaking. The design of the badge won't change, and new pamphlets are expected in Scout shops in mid-November.
Why make this change? Well, anyone who sticks around to watch a movie's credits knows that cinematography is just one specific part of making a movie. So calling a merit badge that covers all of moviemaking "Cinematography" was something of a misnomer.
See the list of requirements for more information.
2 - Lowe's Eagle Scout
Last year (2012) was the
first year of Lowe's grants
of $100 gift cards for those
working on Eagle Scout
projects. There are a limited number of grants available this year, but you should check them out quickly, as there are not as many. To check out the program go to the site http://sdicbsa.org/Advancement/Eagle.php

titled "Lowe's National
Eagle Scout Project Impact
