I recently purchased a new Scout shirt and am about to sew on my knots.
The question I have is: is there a correct order in which to place
them, if not is there a standard order that people do place them in? I
have talked to several individuals and there were two major responses.
The first was to put them in the order you earned them, starting with
the arrow of light and so forth. The second was to put them in the
order of the more prestigious going first and working your way down;
ie. starting with eagle followed by AoL and so forth.
Also, I know that I can wear my Eagle ribbon at certain formal events,
but can other ribbons be worn also?

At one time the uniform guide specified where and in what order to wear
the knots. There is no specified order now, I believe. For me, I wear
them in a highest-lowest, boy earned-adult earned (with boy close to
pocket and adult above that) order.
The Eagle is the only boy earned award worn as an adult, unless you may
wear you religious award (I don't remember about that). In additon to
your eagle ribbon, you may wear Scouter's Key and Training Award, adult
religious award, etc.
