Connie sent in this question:
My cubs earned the Cub Scout World Conservation Award as Bears. In June we will be Webelos and part of our den program this year is to offer the Nova Wild program. Do they need to earn the CS World Conservation Award again or can the award they have earned be applied to this Nova program? We have not applied the Conservation Award to any other Nova Programs.
I think they probably need to earn it again since the requirement for both the Nova award and the World Conservation Award are different for each rank. But the wording of the requirement is ambiguous, so it could probably go either way. It wouldn’t hurt to reach out to whoever is in charge of Nova awards in your area and ask. He or she could give a more definitive answer.
Readers, do you have any experience with this? Feel free to add your comments below.
