* an Interpreter strip in Sign language or another language (it's hard
for many Cubs to earn, or maybe not, depending on the school system
and availability of a teacher to teach your Cubs.
* The William T. Hornaday Award for the Den. The Den receives a
certificate and (I still think that they do this) bronze pins for each
Cub Scout (no square knot...the pins take the place of the knot and is
worn in the same manner).
* your Council's recruiter strip or award by having each boy to
recruit another boy to the Pack. In this way, an entire new Den can
be formed from your Den's efforts. Your Council may also chip in with
a special plaque or award to present!
Hope those all helped!
