ussspdivnew.gif (3230 bytes)

In 2005, in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the Cub Scouting Program, which began in 1930, BSA developed a set of 75th Anniversary Awards which could be earned by individual Cub Scouts (including Tiger, Wolf, Bear, and Webelos Scouts), Cub Scout Leaders, Families of Cub Scouts, and Cub Scout Packs.  Each award emblem border featured a different color. These awards are no longer available.

This version could be earned by Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, and family members


Complete requirement 1 and five other activities.

  1. Participate in a pack, district, or council celebration commemorating the 75th Anniversary of Cub Scouting. (This could be a blue and gold banquet.)
  2. Invite another family to attend a 75th Anniversary event or activity to learn more about Cub Scouting and how to join.
  3. Visit a business, landmark, or other site or structure in your community that is at least 75 years old. Talk to a representative about how the location has changed in the past 75 years.
  4. As a family, make a list of household items that would not have existed 75 years ago. Discuss what might have been used instead and how life was different without these items.
  5. Bake a cake, pie, cookies, or other dessert using ingredients that would have been available 75 years ago. Decorate the dessert with a Cub Scout theme.
  6. Start a family scrapbook, or add to an existing one. Include photographs or memorabilia from at least six different Scouting activities.
  7. Make a family time capsule with each family member including items that represent what is important to him or her. Decide on a future date on which to open the capsule together.
  8. As a family, read an article together from Boys’ Life magazine (accessible via the Internet at www.boyslife.org). Talk about how this article would have been different had it been written 75 years ago.
  9. Draw a family time line going back at least 75 years. Include significant dates such as birthdays, weddings, and when family members joined Scouting. Mark 1930 as the year Cub Scouting began.
  10. Find a picture or photograph of the Cub Scout uniform in 1930. Discuss how the uniform has changed. Have each family member draw a picture of what they think the Cub Scout uniform might look like 75 years in the future.
