What is the Cyber Chip award?

Today’s youth are spending more time than ever using digital media for education, research, socializing, and fun. To help families and volunteers keep youth safe while online, the Boy Scouts of America has introduced the Cyber Chip. In developing this exciting new tool, the BSA teamed up with content expert NetSmartz®, part of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® and training expert for many law enforcement agencies. One of the requirements for rank advancement is to “earn the Cyber Chip award for your age.” In rare circumstances this requirement may be waived.
