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 awarded to each youth and adult member of qualifying packs


Complete requirement 1 and five other activities.

  1. Hold a blue and gold banquet celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Cub Scouting.

  2. Conduct an open house or recruiting event (an indoor event or held outdoors at a local park or other facility) to introduce new families to Cub Scouting and emphasize how Scouting’s values have remained constant throughout Cub Scouting’s 75-year history.
  3. Take part in a parade or other community event through which your pack can promote the 75th Anniversary of Cub Scouting.
  4. Conduct a pack derby in which boys are encouraged to decorate entries with a 75th Anniversary of Cub Scouting theme.
  5. Using the history of Cub Scouting as the theme, conduct an outdoor campfire program.
  6. Conduct a pack service project, such as Good Turn for America, that promotes and reinforces the concept of 75 years of Cub Scouts helping others. As a pack, contribute at least 75 hours of service.
  7. Work with your chartered organization to recognize Cub Scouting’s 75th Anniversary in the organization’s correspondence, newsletters, or other media.
  8. Prepare a photo display for your chartered organization or other community location, highlighting activities of your pack today and in years past. This may also include photos from other family members who were in Scouting.
  9. Appoint a pack historian to document pack events during the 75th Anniversary celebration. The historian may add to an existing scrapbook or history or may begin a scrapbook or other record that the pack can build on in the future.
  10. At your chartered organization, local park, or other community site, plant a tree to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of Cub Scouting.
