Additional Youth Awards - National Den Award

The Cub Scout and Webelos Scout program has its greatest impact in the den. If den meetings and activities are successful, the programs are successful. The National Den Award was introduced to recognize dens that conduct a quality year-round program. The award can be earned only once in any 12-month period. The period (charter year, calendar year, etc.) is to be determined by the pack committee. The award consists of a blue streamer that can be suspended from the den flag.
