Awards season for magazines comes with good news for the BSA’s official publications.
Boys’ Life and Scouting magazines each picked up Folio awards this month, honors that mean the Boy Scouts of America’s magazines are some of the best around.
Boys’ Life won an Eddie (editorial) award for its May 2014 “BL Essentials Guide.” Scouting magazine picked up an Ozzie (design) award for the four-page illustration in its May-June 2014 “Game of Life to Eagle” story.
Mike Goldman, editorial director for Boys’ Life and Scouting, said Folio awards recognize a team effort.
“I’m proud of everyone who works on our magazines,” Goldman said. “We strive to deliver a great reading experience all year long, and that requires our writing, editing, photography, design, production and circulation...
Spoilers follow! Don’t read if you haven’t yet watched the Season 2 finale of MasterChef Junior.
Sixteen young chefs entered Gordon Ramsay’s MasterChef Junior competition, but only one left with the title of champion and a check for $100,000.
The show, a spinoff of Ramsay’s popular MasterChef, pits 8- to 13-year-olds against one another in a series of increasingly difficult cooking challenges.
Those race-the-clock challenges — including filleting Alaskan salmon, flipping pancakes and cooking the perfect sunny-side-up eggs — were no match for Logan Guleff, a 12-year-old Boy Scout from Troop 34 of the Chickasaw Council, headquartered in Memphis, Tenn.
Logan, who first made headlines in Boys’ Life magazine, won the finale and title of MasterChef Junior...

Kate Middleton’s latest royal stop trumps even her high-profile visit to the U.S. earlier this month — in my opinion, at least.
Today she visited a newly established Scout group in east London to lend a hand to the U.K. Scout Association’s “Better Prepared” campaign, which brings Scouting to young people living in low-income areas.
In January 2012, I blogged about the Duchess’ new role as volunteer with the U.K. Scout Association. And in March 2013, she did what every Scout volunteer should: She got trained.
Today, Kate, who is pregnant with her second child, is at it again. She’s wearing a black Scouting hoodie with jeans and boots...
Boy Scout Logan Guleff sure has made the most of his appearance on Fox’s MasterChef Junior, a nationally televised cooking competition for kids.
The 12-year-old from Troop 34 of the Chickasaw Council, headquartered in Memphis, Tenn., has advanced to the finals. That means he’ll appear in every episode of the season.
Logan will compete in the final two against Samuel, with the winner picking up $100,000. Not bad for a 12-year-old!
While watching MasterChef Junior this season, I’ve been impressed by Logan’s willingness to encourage others. He’s always the first to congratulate a competitor on a dish well done, and he’s quick to acknowledge his own mistakes.
Humility and kindness aren’t traits you often...
