Embroidered Centennial Ring Emblem

A new emblem released for the 100th anniversary is flying off Scout Shop shelves! The emblem designed to be placed around the World Crest emblem, went on sale last week.

The Embroidered Centennial Ring Emblem, is being sold for $1.49 and is available online at ScoutStuff.org and in Scout Shops around the country.

Official product description:
2 5/8″ embroidered ring meant to encircle the World Crest emblem. The words “Boy Scouts of America, 1910 — 100 Years — 2010” embroidered in red and white, on red, white, blue, and gold background. World Crest emblem sold separately.

While official information about this emblem is not readily available, the ScoutStuff Facebook page has a few pieces of information, posted by staff.
– It’s optional and can be worn on any uniform (all programs) around the World Crest.
– This goes around the World Crest, so it would not be considered for temporary placement as advised by the Insignia Guide.
– Feel free to wear it at least through 2010.

What are your thoughts on this new emblem? Will your uniform be sporting one?

Sure, it’s another gimmic perhaps, to advertise or , in my opinion, CELEBRATE, the 100 years of scouting in our nation…so choose by yourself! It isn’t manditory, so do what you like! Personally, I like it; and choose to wear it. I offered it to my local home troop and Jamboree troop, and they all are deciding on their own, whether to wear it or not(although many are buying it as a momento at least; and yes, I know that some have even tried to make money off of it on ebay…

“Could you cite your source for this information? Nothing personal but i like to see things in writing, esp dealing with the National Council.”

Check with your Council’s Scout Executive. He or she was sent a Supply Group email and later paper bulletin back in the middle summer of last year (2009) which announced the Ring Emblem and other 100th Anniversary insignia to roll out with the start of the 2010 program year (August 2009).

The Supply Bulletin states in part the *temporary nature* of the Ring emblem and also encourages local Council Scout Executives to promote the program among its membership. There’s a separate email which went to the “field” which also addresses the “temporary expectation” of not only the Ring emblem but the 2010 BSA patch and the five “tassels” which may be earned by present and former Scouts, Venturers, Sea Scouts, and volunteers and professionals.

“Too bad you can’t buy ANY world crest badge, much less the surround. They all seem to be unavailable anywhere…”

If you go to the UK SCOUTS or to the World Organization of Scouting Movement’s websites (I’m not posting links — do a Yahoo or Google search and they should come up at the top or near the top), you’ll see among the insignia sold there the World Crest.

It is a different *version* of the World Crest, but it’s the World Crest nevertheless.

We as a Troop were excited about this 100th circle patch and made it an incentive that if each scout participated in a community service project or eagle project this year in the troop… then the TROOP 59 would pay for their patch. Wouldn’t ya know that we have seen many many volunteers. Cool idea BSA! As Frosty the Snowman would say…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
