Back It Up   Back It Up Minute   Scout Minute

This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
$10 bill
Eagle patch or Life patch
You'll need a $10 or $20 bill - or even larger if you want to make a big impression :-)

Hold up the bill for all to see or pass it around the circle.
Ask, "What is this?"
Ask, "What is it worth?"
Ask why the bill is worth so much.

The bill is really just a piece of paper. It has no value. But, it has been created and certified by the U.S. Government to be 'worth' $10.00 and can be exchanged for $10 worth of food or other stuff. It is Backed Up by the strength of our government. Without that power and trust Backing It Up, the bill would be worthless.

Hold up the Eagle or Life patch.
Look at this patch. It's just a piece of fabric, not worth anything. But, it's valuable because we know it represents years of learning, leading, and serving. It is Backed Up by the efforts and commitment made by the young man that wears it.

When you receive your own patch like this, you will know that the patch itself is not that important. How you Back It Up is the important part.
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
