Scouts from all across the state gathered Saturday at Montana State University-Northern for the Eighth Annual Hi-Line Merit Badge College program, where scouts can work and earn merit badges while working with a number of different instructors.
Event organizer Bill Lanier said that it was the first year they have had the event entirely at the university. He added that, previously, the Merit Badge College was held in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
