There was almost a full page article on Chris Stowell in the Tulsa World newspaper on Mar 3. Deron Smith, a national spokesman for Boy Scouts of America said, "Should qualified experts in the field of beekeeping submit a proposal to reinstate the merit badge, the suggestion would be considered." He also said, "We are aware of this youth member's petition and are excited to see his passion for scouting and beekeeping." I think we are on the right road, we just need many more signatures. Thanks again to everyone who signed.
