True, there is currently no specified order.

Not accurate. In addition to the Eagle, any of the following may
be earned as a youth, with the appropriate knot worn as an adult:
Arrow of Light, Explorer Gold Award, Quartermaster Award, Youth
Religious Award, Hornaday Award, Honor Medal, Heroism Award, and
Medal of Merit. I imagine that a youth might also potentially
have (earn) the James E. WEst Fellowship (cash) award, and the
OA Distinguished Service Award, although I am not positive on these
Of course frequency of some awards is low, and so the occurance
of the knot is also infrequent.
