The Board Game Design Contest is a game design contest open to board, card, and dice games that are not commercially available.
Dr. Tom Dayton is a Design Thinking Facilitator from IBM. He coaches teams in managing design operations, product, and project all over the world. Dr. Dayton got a PhD in cognitive science and was a Cub Scout and an Eagle Scout.
The contest consists of 3 rounds. First round submissions require a pitch video and short description of your game. The top entries will move onto round two and send in game rules and a how to play video. The top 5 entries from round two will move onto round three where they will send in a physical prototype of their game. Judges will play the 5 finalists and choose a winner.
The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This approach to education is designed to revolutionize the teaching of subject areas such as mathematics and science by incorporating technology and engineering into regular curriculum by creating a “meta-discipline.”
2:00pm – Opening ceremony
2:10pm – Announcement
2:30pm – Magic Show
(performed by the Magician, Mr. Doug Jones)
3:00pm – Den meeting
3:30pm – Closing ceremony
Tiger Den needs to work on the Tiger Elective 19 – Magic Fun “Learn a magic trick and show it to your family or den.” (Tiger Badge Requirements)
Bear Den needs to work on the Item e in the Bear Achievement 22 – Tying It All Up is “Learn a magic rope trick.” So this is great chance for Bears to learn a magic rope trick. (Bear Badge Requirements)
For other dens, although you won’t be doing any requirements for this topic, you can still enjoy the magic tricks and learn to have fun or use the 30 minutes den meeting time to work on other requirements.
Having a positive attitude means that we think about the good and not the negative things we do or face in our lives. While learning magic tricks and puzzles, it can be frustrating, especially when we don’t get the trick or puzzle figured out right away. That negative “I can’t do it” may come more easily to us than trying again with an “I-think-I-can” positive attitude. That “I think I can” just might quickly turn into “I can!”
“Positive Attitude” is one of Cub Scouting’s 12 Core Values. Cub Scout leaders should strive to use Cub Scouting’s 12 core values throughout all elements of the program—service projects, ceremonies, games, skits, songs, crafts, and all the other activities enjoyed at den and pack meetings

2:45 – Recycle games
3:20 – Closing ceremony
When we recycle, used materials are converted into new products, reducing the need to consume natural resources. If used materials are not recycled, new products are made by extracting fresh, raw material from the Earth, through mining and forestry.
Recycling helps conserve important raw materials and protects natural habitats for the future.
Using recycled materials in the manufacturing process uses considerably less energy than that required for producing new products from raw materials – even when comparing all associated costs, like transport.
Plus there are extra energy savings because more energy is required to extract, refine, transport and process raw materials ready for industry compared with providing industry-ready materials.
GreenWaste is a privately owned and locally operated recycling and diversion company that specializes in the collection and processing of residential and commercial trash, yard trimmings, curbside recyclables and food waste in addition to construction and demolition debris. GreenWaste has been a pioneer in the recycling industry since its inception in 1991 and has demonstrated leadership in an efficient, effective and environmentally sound collection and processing operations.
