The youth religious knot may be worn on the cub scout uniform, the boy scout

For Cub Scout awards:
lower level award - Cub Scout device
higher level award - WEBELOS device
For Boy Scout awards:
lower level award (i.e. Ad Atari Dei) - Boy Scout device
higher level (i.e. Pope Pius XII) - used to be Explorer device, I don't know
what it would be now.
For Venturing - I don't know.
