A while back John M sent in this Webelos Crossover certificate he had made to share with everyone. However, many readers have asked for an easy way to use this with their own unit, award, etc. Now we have it!

Since the you enter the information, you can use it for ranks, awards, merit badges, or whatever you like. #CubScouts #BoyScouts #BSA
