Learning how to express ideas is important for people of all ages. Cub Scouts can practice storytelling, writing, and presentation skills by working on the Communicating belt loop from the Cub Scout Academics and Sports Program.
If you make Cub Scouts aware of the requirements, many of them will find they are already doing them in school. Why not get some recognition for it?
Remember, the program is meant to introduce different subjects and sports to Cub Scouts. They don’t have to do the requirements perfectly. Remember the Cub Scout Motto – “Do Your Best”.
