We are pleased to offer the "Scouting the Web Award" for those Scouts who have demonstrated their ability to gather information with computers and the Internet about Scouting and the Cub Scout program. Many of the requirements for this award also qualify for a significant part of earning the Cub Scout Academic and Sports Program Computer Belt Loop

This Scouting Internet patch award is geared towards Scouts in the Cub Scout Program or grade level equivalent, however anyone may participate.

Over 1,000 scouts have earned this award patch since 2003!
