Cubmaster Award Knot
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.
The Cubmaster Award replaced the Scouter's Key as Cubmaster, which was phased out on December 31, 1988. Initially there was a neck ribbon, but the ribbons were phased out in 2001.
