Missouri is a state of tremendous geographic and cultural diversity. The Missouri Explorers program encourages people to travel across the state and participate in challenges to receive a Missouri Explorer Merit Badge. We are working to create fun and educational challenges that span our great state of Missouri.
The Way of American Genius Challenge is sponsored by the Missouri Highway 36 Association. The mission of the Missouri Highway 36 Association is to cultivate the educational experience and the economic wellbeing of the Missouri Highway 36 corridor by fostering a greater appreciation of its natural, cultural, and historic resources by identifying and promoting the theme “The Way of American Genius”; those individuals and innovations that have uniquely defined and influenced American culture, and character.
