I followed up with my contact today, with this note:PaulSWolf wrote:Some further information:
I got this response to a query to the National Office, that explains in a bit more detail what the hold-up is.We are working as fast as we can to get all the pieces and parts of this exciting 2010 anniversary activity activated. It isn’t on hold, just not ready to release yet. We have one final piece some volunteers are working on which is a guide to the original requirements that explains how it was back then compared to how it is now. We want this to be a real growth experience not just four more badges. We’re hoping we will be able to release this very soon.
I got this reply:I know you're working to get the badges available. Thanks for the note you sent a couple of weeks ago.
Due to the delay in implementation, has any thought been given to changing the program deadline for completion of the badges from December 31, 2010, to, say, February 8, 2011 (or 2/28/11) to coincide with the end of the actual centennial, rather than the end of the calendar year?
As I'm sure you're aware, BSA has taken quite a but of flak online for the delays. Extending the deadline may be a way to divert some of the criticism.
Hopefully any day now. Several people have suggested the extension so will have to consider

Latest non information on this program. They are planning on putting out all this other helpful info but there are still no official requirements or a date on when they might be released.
