Check out other badges that might work well with this badge when doing activities with multiple levels. These are simply suggestions and may take some creativity and extra steps to earn all the badges in various levels.
A Multi-Level Troop will need to do extra steps when earning different badges across levels. It depends on how many requirements overlap. Some will only have one or two matching requirements.
If there is no badge in a level, we suggest that a level earns a Fun Patch related to the rest of the badges instead of an official badge.
All the New Cookie Business badges released in 2021 are designed to have most of the requirements naturally done during every Cookie Season. This makes it helpful to earn just by doing the Cookie Sale even on multi-level troops. Some have 1-3 requirements that require specific skills or learning. Here are the bare bones of each Cookie Business badge so you know which topics to hit during the Cookie fundraiser.

This badge should go where #14 is stated on the GSUSA Uniform Guide.
(Note – Badges and pins on a sash simply go in order (top of sash to bottom of sash) of Identification badges, bridging badge, pins, journeys, and other badges. Anything that does not fit on the front can be placed on the back of the sash. Sashes will not hold a lot of badges and vests are recommended if you plan to earn badges.)
