This checkoff list could be used by a scribe to keep track of which Scouts have earned which merit badges or could be used by an individual Scout.
Public Speaking Merit Badge
A lot happens during the course of every person's life and your ability to communicate your feelings and ideas is the best way to connect to the larger world. Even if you haven't stood at a podium on the stage and find the whole idea scary, sooner or later, someone is going to ask you to get up and say a few words. If you are prepared, it won't be scary. It can even be fun.
