This is a chance to try something new and to do your best without worrying about winning or losing. Cub Scouts earn awards for learning teamwork and skills, getting physically fit, finding and building new talents, and doing your best. These things are more important than winning.
You earn a belt loop to wear with your uniform when you complete three
specific requirements for each Academics or Sports activity. You can take
part in three ways: (1) by yourself or with your family, (2) in your den
or pack, or (3) in school or as part of an organized team.
Academics and Sports Letter and Pins
Once you have earned the belt loop, you can stop. But if you liked it and want to do more with the activity, you may complete extra requirements to earn a pin.
A good place to display Academics and Sports pins is on the Academics and Sports letter. You can wear the letter on a sweater or a jacket, or display or frame it. The letter does not go on the Cub Scout uniform. There are no special requirements for earning the letter, because it's just for displaying the pins.
