The Medal of Merit may be awarded to a youth member or adult leader who has performed some outstanding act of service of a rare or exceptional character that reflects an uncommon degree of concern for the well-being of others.
The medal may be worn on formal occasions and with civilian wear. The medal is worn on uniform pinned above left pocket. The square knot symbol is worn centered directly above the left pocket.
