Adult Religious Award

Adult Religious Award Knot


For more a summary of requirements for individual Adult Religious Awards, please visit http://usscouts.org/scoutduty/index.asp. Requirements are listed by religion.

This square knot is worn by those whom have received a religious award as an adult member of the BSA. The awards are not BSA awards and are presented by religious organizations for long tenure of service to Scouting, the religion, and the community. With one exception all of these awards require a nomination. Self-nomination is not allowed.

Only one Adult Religious Award square knot is worn regardless of how many awards have been received. It is possible, for example, to receive two or three levels of awards in some faiths or to receive awards from more than one faith.

The following faiths or denominations have religious awards for adults:
