You are correct on the rank awards which may be worn if earned as a youth.
The medal awards are worn for formal occasions only, and those are defined
in the Insignia Control Guide. Also, Eagle Palms may be worn on knots, if
earned (see same guide, current edition); by all means wear them on the
ribbon of the medal, if earned.
A "clean" (meaning minimal decoration) uniform is in good taste, but if an
adult desires to wear all that is allowed to be worn on a uniform at one
time, that same adult needs to be sure the items are at the correct
locations. Refer to Insignia Control Guide, and Uniform Inspection Sheets,
male or female leaders, as applicable, for proper insignia locations.
