The following merit badges were awarded at the Court of Honor: Alex Grabowski-Athletics, Sports, and Camping; Alex Trzebiatowski-Law; Brandon Rebar-Astronomy and Snow Sports; Corey Trzebiatowski-Fire Safety and Reptile & Amphibian Studies; Eli Strangfeld-Aviation; Jackson Grabowski-First Aid; Logan Wilson-Music and Reptile & Amphibian Studies; Michael Hron-Citizenship in the Nation; Vaughn Nyden-Citizenship in the World.
