In order to earn the rank of...
- Tenderfoot and Life, Scouts must use the EDGE model (explain, demonstrate, guide and enable) to teach others.
- Second Class, a Scout must earn an amount of money agreed to by him and his parents and save at least 50% of it.
- First Class, Scouts must demonstrate Leave No Trave principles on outings.
- Star, Life and Eagle, Scouts can now use the Troop Webmaster and Leave No Trace trainer as leadership positions.

This is actually a felt banner (8.5" x 11") which was meant to be hung on a wall or some other flat surface. It could have been also put into a picture frame but it is a bit thicker than a normal photo.

It is Mike Rowe of the Discovery Channel Show DIRTY JOBS.
As Mike says:
The Scout law is still one of the best guides for living you'll find. But if you are going to deliberately ignore one element, make it "clean." It's overrated.
You can take a look at his website: http://www.mikeroweworks.com/.
You can also take a look at the letter he sent a 13 year old Scout, encouraging him to earn his Eagle: http://www.mikeroweworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=241

Course for Scouters October 2-4, 2009 The Leave No Trace (LNT) Train the Trainer course is a weekend 16 hour courses designed for Scouters, educators, youth leaders, etc. who value the outdoors and want to teach others how to protect and preserve it.
The course will be taught by LNT Master Educators Rob Heider and Ed Dennis who are Scouters and veteran BSA High Adventure advisers. The class will cover topics like: a brief history of wilderness and public land protection, review of LNT principles, teaching techniques and learning styles, all with an emphasis on Scouting and LNT. There will be discussion regarding how LNT has been incorporated into the new 2010 Rank Requirements.
Each student will receive information via e-mail to prepare for the course, and will conclude the course with an action plan to teach LNT in the Scouting community. A maximum of 10 students will be accepted. Course graduates receive a certificate from the Leave No Trace Center for Ethics and will be qualified to teach LNT principles to Scouts, Scouters, and other interested groups.
For details and registration, please contact Rob Heider at firstname.lastname@example.org
