Youth religious award square knot on adult uniform?


Best Answer Col. Flagg , 08 March 2017 - 10:44 AM

My son recently aged out and will be staying on board as an ASM.   He earned 2 youth religious awards and has the square knot on his uniform. My question is whether that can be worn on an adult uniform?  I can't seem to find an official answer, but this unofficial source seems to indicate it can be worn.

I had to deal with something similar for my son who recently made Eagle but is 18. He's obviously an adult, is an (adult) member of the troop and just joined the Venture Crew. He can wear adult knots only on his Boy Scout uniform. He *can* wear the AOL and Eagle knots. On his Venture uniform he *can* wear the Eagle patch until his 21, then he has to follow the Boy Scout guidelines.

 

In trying to find out the answer to *my* problem, perhaps this will help you with your problem:

 

Badges of Rank Limited to Youth Members

In Scouting, the advancement program is limited to youth members only. Adult Scouters should neither seek awards designed for youth members nor wear them on the Scouter uniform except for square knots representing the Arrow of Light rank, Eagle Scout Award, Venturing Summit Award, Quartermaster Award, or religious emblems earned as a youth member.

Not only could, but should!  Also, if he earned the arrow of light and/or eagle scout, he should wear those too.

Thanks for the input!  I didn't see that last line from the insignia guide.
