I don't know the _official_ line on this one, but I think that by splitting
some hairs you could distinguish between awards, which have a set of tests
to be passed before they are earned, and what could be termed recognitions
(to coin a phrase) like service stars and attendance bars, that recognise
service and attendance but do not actually require tests to be passed. On
that basis it can be perfectly justified to wear cub insignia in scouts and
still state that AOL is the only cub _award_ worn on scout uniform.
