Upon reading the youth application it says the youth must:

  • be 14 years old by January 1, 2018, or have completed the 8th grade AND be at least 13 years of age prior to participation.
  • be a registered Scout and hold a rank of First Class or higher.

I wanted to get this out there as a clarification since it may have impact on who is eligible.
