PERSONNEL:  WEBELOS den leader, Arrow of Light candidate and his parents, light switch operator.

EQUIPMENT:  Arrow of Light cutout with electric light, AoL Award and certificate, safety pins.

ARRANGEMENT:  The Arrow of Light cutout draws attention to center stage. It is made by cutting out the Arrow of Light from the side of a large cardboard box and pasting tissue paper behind the cutout section. A light bulb is inserted in the box. (Be careful that the bulb does not come in contact with the sides of the box.) After the Arrow of Light candidate and his parents are on stage, the house lights are dimmed or turned off.

WEBELOS Den Leader: Tonight we honor a WEBELOS Scout who has completed the requirements for Cub Scouting’s highest rank, the Arrow of Light Award.

Will WEBELOS Scout [name] and his parents come to the front? (They do.)  You have been a faithful member of our WEBELOS den. Soon you will graduate from Cub Scouting. You have learned the Boy Scout requirements, visited the Boy Scout troop of your choice, and secured a Boy Scout application.  Tonight you receive the Arrow of Light Award. Within a short time you will be eligible to enter Boy Scouting.

You were guided in your progress through Cub Scouting’s ranks by the Arrow of Light (points to it), which is this emblem. Let this Arrow of Light continue to light your way as you move onward and upward along the Scouting trail.

It is now our pleasure to present to you the Arrow of Light Award, which you may wear on the flap of your left shirt pocket of your WEBELOS Scout uniform. Later, you may wear it on your Boy Scout uniform. Because your father and mother came up through the ranks of Cub Scouting with you, I will hand the award to them and ask them, in turn, to present it to you.  (Pause while this is carried out.)

Now, I congratulate you for the fine work you have done in Cub Scouting and extend the best wishes of the entire pack to you and your parents as you continue up the Scouting trail into Boy Scouting.
