Longest Pinewood Derby Track

Everybody who has been in Cub Scouts or had a son in Cub Scouting has probably enjoyed the wonder of racing in a Pinewood Derby. The folks in Milwaukee are taking it to new heights literally. There will be a Pinewood Derby event just before the Milwaukee Wave game against Philadelphia at the stadium with a 200 foot long track that starts high in the stands. Game fans are being invited to bring a car to race. What a great way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. News Story at

BSA to be Featured Category on Jeopardy - Feb 25

From BSA

The Boy Scouts of America is proud to announce that we will be a featured category on the February 25 episode of Jeopardy!.

This is a tremendous opportunity to extend our brand footprint to a nationally televised audience during our 100-year celebration.

Jeopardy! has been the top-rated television game show for several years. Having the opportunity to align our brand and movement with such a highly visible platform is strategically sound and organizationally exciting.

Be sure to stay tuned for the entire show, including the commercial breaks, because the BSA will be spotlighted during the first or second commercial break.

Brand Management would like to thank Scout Executive Jim Martin and the staff at the Golden Empire Council for supporting this effort.

Please check your local listings for stations and times in your area.
If you have questions, please contact Eric Moore at the BSA national office at .

Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program

We've had a chance to review the new 2009 edition of the BSA Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program Guide. In addition to a number of new academics subjects and new sports included in the program, most of the other subjects and sports have had revisions to their requirements.

We've updated our web pages to reflect the current requirements for all academics subjects and sports. The old requirements are also still available so you can see what has changed.

The Academics Program pages can be accessed at
