For Boy Scouts in Hawaii and in the United States, 2010 marks 100 years of Scouting. Each Sunday throughout the year, the Star-Advertiser will present historic photographs and factoids to help commemorate the centennial.

Three new merit badges have been added to the long list of badges Scouts can earn: Inventing, Scuba Diving and Scouting Heritage, bringing the total to 128. In 1926, there were 57. Two more merit badges will be available later this year: Geocaching and Robotics.
