The most important award that each scout can earn is the rank badge. For first-graders, this means earning their Bobcat and Tiger badge. Second graders earn their Wolf badge. Third graders earn their Bear badge. And fourth and fifth-graders earn their Webelos badge and their Arrow of Light badge. These badges are not automatically given to any scout who joins — your scout must earn them by following the guidelines set in his handbook.
