The envelope should be labeled showing the Scout’s name and contact information, unit number, and who dropped off the package.

Be sure to get a receipt for material being dropped off.

BE PREPARED FOR YOUR BOARD OF REVIEW

All documentation (with original signatures) listed above must be presented at the Board of Review as a hard copy.
