JOPLIN, MO-- Boy Scouts from the fourstate area take over Missouri Southern State University.

The campus hosted Merit Badge University for the second year in a row on Saturday.

More than 250 boy scouts attended to earn up to two badges.

Scout leaders say it's a great opportunity to keep teaching the boys life-long skills.

"whether that's first aid, emergency preparedness, physical fitness, personal management, the list goes on and on on different life skills that these boys can be learning," says Boy Scout District Director Bryon Haverstick.

The event serves as the biggest fundraiser for Missouri Southern's Phi Beta Lambda and DECA clubs.
