Discuss this contest at a PLC meeting and decide which two points of the Scout Law shall be used in the contest. At the following Troop meeting announce the contest and let the Scouts know that members of their families may help them cut out clippings related to the two points selected at the PLC. Then the Patrols meet and decide what day they will cut clippings. (Any local newspaper may be used.)

The Scouts bring their clippings and give them to the Patrol Leaders at the next Patrol meeting. The Patrol Leaders take the clippings home, select from them two which illustrate the two chosen points of Law especially well, and read them to the entire Troop at the next Troop meeting. By a show of hands the Troop selects two to be posted on the Troop bulletin board for one month.

Tips

This is an opportunity to carry the ideals of Scouting into the homes. Grasp it, and encourage your Scouts to get their parents to go over the newspapers with them and help to find appropriate items.
