** Important for all Merit Badges - Always get your councelors name, phone number and email address so your Unit can help you connect if you don't get it done or lose your blue card! Your unit needs to know who has the copies of your blue card.
An Introduction to all the Merit Badges offered by the BSA can be found at https://www.scouting.org/programs/scouts-bsa/advancement-and-awards/merit-badges
Merit Badge Worksheets can be found in both Microsoft Word (doc) or Adobe reader (PDF) at https://meritbadge.org/
BSA discourages — but doesn't ban — the use of these worksheets see Bryan on Scouting article why "Merit badge worksheets are "permitted only for fulfilling requirements where something is to be done in writing," he says. And merit badge counselors may never require the use of merit badge worksheets and may, if they choose, refuse to accept them, Hunt says."
