It's finally available

Requirements and image from
After several false starts, the LDS-BSA Relationships office has finally published the Thomas S. Monson Award requirements.  There's no reason why anyone shouldn't be able to do most of this on a "Duty to God Night."
Requirements (do both)
  1. Read “100 Years of Scouting in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”  With your family or a Scout leader, discuss two things you learned from this history.
  2. Read “Run, Boy, Run,” (same link) and write your feelings about this story in your journal.
Electives (any four)
  1. Complete at least two requirements toward earning the Genealogy merit badge.
  2. Complete at least two requirements toward earning the Family Life merit badge.
  3. Memorize the thirteenth article of faith, and discuss with your family or a leader how this article of faith and the Scout Law support each other.
  4. Meet two youth outside of your area and discuss with them how Scouting has benefited your life or the life of a Scout you know.
  5. Share your feelings about doing your duty to God with your family, a friend of another faith, or a leader.
