1 Boy Awards Cub Scout Award Summary Only ONE Temporary patch may be worn at a time, but Cub or Webelos Scouts may wear the Progress Through Ranks (Immediate Recognition) or Webelos Compass Points Emblem suspended from the right pocket button in addition to any temporary patch sewn on the pocket. BSA 100 th Anniversary Ribbons Program participants will earn recognition for making a difference in their communities due to their dedication to five of Scouting's core values: Leadership, Character, Community Service, Achievement, and the Outdoors. Through that commitment, participants can earn each of five award ribbons to display from our 100th Anniversary commemorative patch. A Year of Celebration will take place from September 1, 2009 through December 31, The program is open to all Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, adult leaders, and Scouting alumni. Outdoor Activity Award Tiger Cubs, Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts, and Webelos Scouts have the opportunity to earn the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. Boys may earn the award in each of the program years as long as the requirements are completed each year. The first time the award is earned, the boy will receive the pocket flap award, which is to be worn on the right pocket flap of the uniform shirt. Each successive time the award is earned, a wolf track pin may be added to the flap. Leaders should encourage boys to build on skills and experiences from previous years when working on the award for a successive year. Leave No Trace Awareness Award Leave No Trace is a plan that helps people to be more concerned about their environment and to help them protect it for future generations. Leave No Trace applies in a backyard or local park (frontcountry) as much as it does in the wilderness (back-country). This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, Webelos Scouts, and Leaders. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch.

2 World Conservation Award The World Conservation Award provides an opportunity for individual Cub Scouts to 'think globally' and 'act locally' to preserve and improve our environment. This program is designed to make youth members aware that all nations are closely related through natural resources and that we are interdependent with our world environment. The Cub Scout version of the World Conservation Award can be earned by Wolf, Bear, or Webelos Scouts, but not by Tigers. This award can be earned only once while you are in Cub Scouting (i.e. as either a Wolf, Bear, or Webelos Scout). The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch. Emergency Preparedness Award Emergency preparedness means being prepared for all kinds of emergencies, able to respond in time of crisis to save lives and property and to help a community - or even a nation - return to normal life after a disaster occurs. To encourage Scouts of all ages to be prepared for emergency situations, the BSA has approved an Emergency Preparedness Award program for members of all ages. The pin may be worn on civilian clothing or on the uniform, centered on the left pocket flap. The award may be earned more than once, but only one pin may be worn. Perfect Attendance Pin Award to a boy who attended every monthly pack meeting and every den meeting (pack events are optional). The first year the boy is awarded the attendance pin and 1-year bar. Each subsequent year the boy is awarded bars that are attached to the attendance pin (up to 10 years). Religious Emblems A number of religious organizations provide emblems for Cub Scouts. For detailed information, see the Chart of Religious Emblems: Most Cub Scout religious emblems consist of a bar pin and pendant. The religious emblem square knot may be worn by youth or adult members who earned the knot as a youth. All are worn above the left pocket.

3 Interpreter Strip Interpreter strips are made in the alphabet of the native language represented, not the English language translation: French, German, Spanish, signing, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Cantonese (Chinese), Greek, Japanese, Simplified Mandarin (Chinese), Traditional Mandarin (Chinese), Vietnamese. This award may be earned by each registered Tiger Cub, Cub Scout, Webelos Scout, and Leader, worn above right pocket. Recruiter Strip There are NO formal requirements for these strips. Usually, a Recruiter Strip is awarded to a Cub Scout or Boy Scout the first time he is successful in getting a friend, relative, classmate, or other acquaintance to join his unit. Worn below right pocket. Donor Awareness Patch The Donor Awareness Patch is worn on the right pocket of the uniform as a temporary emblem. This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch. Physical Fitness Award This award is a national program of emphasis designed to heighten fitness awareness and to help change the lifestyles of American youth and adults regarding exercise and a healthy diet to improve the quality of their lives. This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch. BSA Family Award To earn the award, a family must complete 10 activities within a 12-month period. The family chooses one activity in two topics in each of several categories. When a family has completed the requirements, all family members are eligible to receive an award certificate, patches for uniform wear, and/or pins for non-uniform wear. This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch.

4 Good Turn for America Award Good Turn for America is a collaboration between the Boy Scouts of America and the Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, American Red Cross, and thousands of other community organizations that focuses the power of volunteerism on important community issues. The three main issues addressed are: hunger, lack of adequate shelter, and poor health. This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch. Conservation Good Turn Award The Conservation Good Turn is an opportunity for Cub Scout packs to join with conservation or environmental organizations (federal, state, local, or private) to carry out a conservation Good Turn in their home communities. Working together in the local community, the unit and the agency plan the details and establish the date, time and location for carrying out the project. Conservation projects should involve the entire Cub Scout pack - scouts, leaders, and family members. This award may be earned by all registered Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts. The award is worn on the uniform shirt, centered on the right pocket as a Temporary patch. United States Heritage Award The United States Heritage Award was designed to give youth recognition for learning about the heritage of the United States of America, and showing patriotism. By earning this award, youth can cultivate an appreciation for the wonderful heritage of the United States of America. A silver medal (and a patch?) can be awarded to all that successfully complete the award requirements. All requirements can be done with a class, unit, group, family, or individually. Service Stars Service stars may be worn by all youth who have at least one year of tenure with the BSA. If a medal or embroidered knot is worn, service stars are worn 3/8 inch above the medal or knot.

5 Whittling Chip Tiger Cub Scout Immediate Recognition Emblem Wolf / Bear Progress Toward Ranks Wolf / Bear Arrow Points Webelos Activity Badges

6 Den Awards National Den Award The National Den Award recognizes dens that have a quality, year-round program. The award goes to dens that do service and conservation projects, Cub Scout Academics and Sports, field trips, character building, and camping. Dens earn the award as a team, not as individual den members. The recognition is a ribbon for the den flag Leader Awards A thorough list of leader awards can be found at: The most likely awards to be earned are listed below. BSA 100 th Anniversary Leave No Trace Emergency Preparedness See previous descriptions under boys section... Trained Patch A direct contact Scout leader is considered fully trained and entitled to wear the Trained leader emblem when he or she has completed the following training courses and the specific training for the position: Fast Start Training, Youth Protection Training, This is Scouting, Position Specific Training Youth Knots Adult leaders may wear these adult leader knots to represent the following youth awards. Arrow of Light To be worn by leaders who earned the Arrow of Light as a Webelos Scout. Eagle Scout To be worn by leaders who earned the rank of Eagle as a Boy Scout. Youth Religious Emblem May be worn by youth or adult members who earned the knot as a youth member, above left pocket. Each faith has its own requirements for earning its emblem. A knot device may be used to indicate during which level of Scouting the award was earned.

7 Cub Scout Leader Knots Cub Scout Leader Recognition awards are available to Cub Scout leaders who complete training, tenure, and performance requirements. These awards are presented by the local council. All of the awards require the completion of Fast Start Training, Basic Leader Training for the position, Youth Protection training, and participation in roundtables or a pow wow or University of Scouting. Some require additional supplemental training. One or two years of registered service in the appropriate position is a requirement for each award, and tenure used for one award may not be used for another. Tiger Cub Den Leader Award Cub Scout Den Leader Award Webelos Den Leader Award Recognizes Den Leaders for at least one year of service, training, and meeting quality program objectives. Cub Scouter Award The Cub Scouter Award recognizes an adult leader registered in a Cub Scout pack for at least two years, who meets specific training, and meeting quality program objectives. Pack Trainer Award The Pack Trainer Award is for a registered Cub Scout pack trainer who meets specific service, training, and quality program objectives. Cubmaster Award Recognizes Cubmasters for at least two years of service, training, and meeting quality program objectives. Service Stars Service stars may be worn by all youth and adult members who have at least one year of tenure with the BSA. The stars are worn with the appropriate color background for the phase of Scouting in which the service was rendered. If an individual's primary registration is in one phase of Scouting and later in another, separate stars with the appropriate background and numerals may be worn simultaneously. Or, leaders may combine youth and adult tenure into one or two stars with blue background. If a medal or embroidered knot is worn, service stars are worn 3/8 inch above the medal or knot.

8 Pack Awards Centennial Quality Unit The Quality Unit Award recognizes outstanding packs that have quality programs for their members. To earn this award, packs need well-trained leaders and they must meet several other requirements, such as holding regular pack meetings, qualifying for the National Summertime Pack Award, going on an outdoor activity, doing a service project, and having at least three-fourths of the Scouts advance in rank. All members, both youth and adults, of a pack that earns this award may wear the Quality Unit emblem on their uniforms on their right sleeve in position 3.
