Participation Badges are awarded for attendance at Cat Scouts events. For example, the North Pole trip held in December. After the event is held, you can get your karma points by entering the redemption code in the box on the right.
Participation Badges do not earn as many karma points as merit badges or service badges, and they do not count toward rank advancement. Unlike merit badges, most of which can be earned at any time, participation badges can only be earned at the time of the event. They do help prove to the world how active you are in Cat Scouts!
