{{Info|On 01 Jun 2015, new requirements went into effect. Boys who had already earned their Webelos rank by then were able to earn their Arrow of Light award using the previous activity badges or the current (new) adventure pins, or a mix of the two as desired. However, given that the Webelos rank used to require six months of active membership, and that boys can only be Webelos for two years, that option has expired. As of 2017, boys must use the current (new) requirements).}}

The highest rank & award in Cub Scouting is the [[Arrow of Light award|Arrow of Light]]. It is one of the few Cub Scout badges that you can wear on your [[Boy Scout Uniform|Boy Scout uniform]]. You will work on outdoor skills, physically fitness, and learn more about [[citizenship]] and working with others. Upon completion of the requirements for Arrow of Light, you can [[bridge]] into a [[Boy Scout]] [[troop]]. [[Webelos Scouts]] that are working toward their Arrow of Light rank & award are commonly called Arrow of Light Scouts, similar to the younger ranks in Cub Scouting.

The Arrow of Light award is worn on the left pocket flap of the blue [[Cub Scout Uniform]] or below the left pocket of the tan [[Boy Scout Uniform]].

Like all other new Cub Scouts, an Arrow of Light Scout must first earn his [[Bobcat]] rank. After completing the requirements for [[Bobcat]] he may go on to complete the requirements for the Arrow of Light rank and the many [[Webelos Scout Adventures|electives]] that are offered for his rank.

-
 
+
-
All Cub Scouts, except for those boys who join Cub Scouting for the first time in fifth grade, must earn their [[Webelos]] rank prior to earning Arrow of Light. The requirements for [[Webelos]] and Arrow of Light may be worked on at the same time but the tenure requirements for each must be met and the awards must be earned and presented sequentially.
