To be correct, the correct name for the knot it the Religious Youth Award.
ANY youth who earns a religios award as a Tiger Cub, Cub Scout, Webelos,
Boy Scout/Varsity Scout, or Explorer may wear the knot AS A YOUTH.
Also they should where the appropriate knot device as needed. If you
earn more then one award (say one as a Cub and another as a Boy Scout)
you wear only one, but wear knot devices to indicate the area the award
was earned in. Thus if a Boy Scout earned the religious award as a
Cub Scout or Webelos, he should wear the Cub Scout or Webelos knot
device to indicate this. If he then earned another as a Boy Scout, he
would add the Boy Scout device to the knot.
Also, the knot may be worn by Cubs and Webelos on their Cub/Webelos uniform.
I hope this clears that up. Consult the _Insignia Control Guide_, its
fairly clear on this.
