Symbols of Honesty Advancement

Alice, Golden Empire Council

Set Up:
Gather objects or pictures to represent the following:

Place objects on a table or display on the wall.

Ceremony:

Cubmaster: These objects on this table may remind you of some people who have come to be known as people of integrity and honesty. (Point to the coonskin cap) Davy Crockett had to learn how to be the person who came be called “The Honest Congressman.” Our Tiger Cubs are also learning many new things as the newest members of our Pack.

(Call up Tiger Cubs and their parents.
Announce names as you hand the boy’s award to his parents and the parent pin to the Tiger scout)

Parents, please present the Tiger badge to your son. Tigers, please present the parent’s pin.



(Allow time for photos, then lead a cheer)

Cubmaster: The hatchet may remind you of the famous story of George Washington, who supposedly “could not tell a lie and admitted he had chopped down the cherry tree.” Now, that story isn’t really true – but it does show that George Washington was known far and wide as a truthful, honest person. Our Wolf scouts are looking to examples like George Washington as they are learning how to be good citizens and truthful scouts.

(Call up Wolf Cubs and their parents.
Announce names as you hand the boy’s award to his parents and the parent pin to the Wolf scout)

Parents, please present the Wolf badge to your son. Wolf scouts, please present the parent’s pin.



(Allow time for photos, then lead a cheer)

Cubmaster: Most of you probably think of Abraham Lincoln when you see a tall top hat – he was also known as Honest Abe. There are many true stories of his willingness to walk long distances to return money to someone who had overpaid him, or to return a borrowed book. The Bears of our pack have enjoyed learning some Tall Tales, but Lincoln was the real thing – a man of integrity. Tonight, we are awarding some Bear badges.

scouts.


(Call up Bear Cubs and their parents.
Announce names as you hand the boy’s award to his parents and the parent pin to the Bear scout)

Parents, please present the Bear badge to your son. Bears, please present the parent’s pin.



(Allow time for photos, then lead a cheer)

Cubmaster: Many of you have seen photos of the Coast Guard rescuing people from sinking boats or even from floods like Katrina. Men and women of the Coast Guard live by standards of integrity and accountability in many different situations. Webelos Scouts are also moving out into different situations, learning new skills, and preparing to live by standards of good citizenship and honesty.

(Call up Webelos and their parents.
Announce names and explain awards as you hand the boy’s award to his parents and
the parent's pin to the Webelos scout)

Parents, please present the Webelos badge to your son. Webelos, please present the parent’s pin.



(Allow time for photos, then lead a cheer)

Cubmaster: The final items on the table represent a goal we hope all our Webelos Scouts will strive to reach – that of Eagle Scout. Tonight, we honor the hard work of Webelos who have made the extra effort to complete the Arrow of Light – it is the only Cub award that can be worn on the Boy Scout uniform.

(Cubmaster can now move into a more substantial ceremony for the Arrow of Light – some units have a bridge to visually show the movement from Cub Scout to Boy Scout. The Scoutmaster or 11 Yr. old Leader should be invited to participate. Parents and Webelos leaders should also be recognized for their support.)
