Arrow of Light Award and Webelos badge candidates and their parents are on stage with the Cubmaster and three Cub Scout representatives, one for each rank.
Cubmaster: The highest rank in Cub Scouting is the Arrow of Light. You may ask, How does a boy reach this high goal? Well, let the Cub Scouts speak for themselves. First, a Bobcat, [name].
Bobcat: I am a Bobcat Cub Scout, a new member of the pack. I have just learned the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack.
Cubmaster: Next, a Wolf, [name].
Wolf: I am a Wolf Cub Scout. I have worked on Cub Scout achievements in the Wolf book. I had lots of fun in my den and pack and with my whole family as I earned my Wolf badge.
Cubmaster: A Bear, [name].
Bear: I am a Bear Cub Scout. I have been working on the advancements in the Bear book with my parents to earn my Bear badge.
Cubmaster: Beyond Bear there is the Webelos badge and the Arrow of Light Award, the highest award in Cub Scouting. Tonight we have two candidates, one for the Webelos badge and one for the Arrow of Light Award, [names].
1st Webelos Scout: I am reaching the end of the Cub Scout trail and have found that it is not an end at all, but only a beginning, leading onward and upward in the great brotherhood of Boy Scouting. In passing the Webelos badge requirements, I have learned and am ready to work on the Boy Scout requirements, and now understand more about the ideals of Boy Scouting.
2nd Webelos Scout: The Arrow of Light trail has led me to the beginning of a new adventure. In learning the Boy Scout requirements, I have found that as a Boy Scout I must continue to do my best!
Cubmaster: (If there are more than two Webelos badge or Arrow of Light Award candidates, he reads other names and asks them to come forward.) To the parents of each of these Webelos Scouts, I take great pride in presenting the Webelos badge or Arrow of Light Award for you to present to your son, so that he may wear it on his Webelos Scout uniform. The Webelos badge is worn on the left pocket, centered at the bottom to complete the diamond of cloth badges. The Arrow of Light Award is worn centered on the flap of his left shirt pocket - and later on his Boy Scout uniform. (Presents badges.) Wear them proudly, Webelos Scouts, wear them well!
These certificates are evidence of the honor you have received. (Presents certificates for badges.)
You parents will find additional enjoyment and satisfaction as you go on into Boy Scouting with your son and help him with his new adventure.
