Religious Emblem in Advancement Resources Posted October 12, 2021 4 minutes ago, scoutldr said: Just to clear up any misconceptions...the religious awards are NOT BSA awards and it is not a BSA program. The award should be earned through the scout's religious leader and awarded by the church. It is one of the few non-BSA awards that the BSA allows to be worn on the uniform. (Medal OR square knot, not both). No misconceptions... is says that clearly in the G2AI link above... "Religious emblems are not considered Scouting awards. Instead they are earned by members and then presented to them by their religious leaders. Each faith has its own requirements for earning their respective emblems. A list of the emblems and more information about the programs can be found at www.scouting.org/ awards/religious-awards/."
