A Webelos scout earns the Arrow of Light award by completing requirements from the Webelos handbook. The Arrow of Light award is the hightest Cub Scout award available. The award patch is worn as a Webelos scout and as a Boy Scout - adults wear the square knot symbol.
Most adult awards and recognitions have certificates, pins or medals, and a patch usually with a square knot embroidered on it in different colors. Adult leaders wear these square knot patches on their uniform over the left pocket. The order that they are worn is up to the individual. To learn more see the Guide to Awards and Insignia.
These awards are worn on the Scouting uniform in place of the plaque or large pendant that they represent. Generally, the knot awards are worn by adult leaders. But there are a few that may be worn by youth members. Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts may wear the Universal Religious Emblem and the lifesaving and Meritorious Award knots.
