You should have all received an email invitation to participate in the BSA BEST study that I discussed at the troop meeting. I encourage you to participate and make your voices heard! Your participation brings some exciting incentives too:
- You can help make Scouting better by sharing our experiences in the BSA.
- You can earn part of a rare three-part patch for each survey you complete.
- Our troop can earn up to $100 in gift cards to the Scout Shop for registering and participating in the survey.
- Some of us also may be asked to complete three telephone interviews. Scouts who are selected will receive a $20 gift card to the Scout Shop for each interview completed, for a total of $60.
Participation in the study is completely voluntary, but if you decide to participate, don’t delay! It only takes a few minutes to sign up. Details on how to sign up are in the email. Please sign up by this Sunday, February 3rd to be eligible.
