Before I became Cubmaster awards consisted of 1st, 2nd, 3rd (Overall Pack), Best in show Trophy, and participation ribbons. I tried kicking it up a knotch last year by adding medals (Crown Awards) for 1st,2nd,3rd in each den. WOW
did they ever go over good. Many of the scouts wore their medals to school the next day for show and tell (and to show them off). I am going to see if I can get a deal at Wal-Mart for Matchbox or HotWheels instead of participation ribbons this year. We also make a ton of blank certificated that we fill out during the derby. Parents have a blast making up awards for different events (ie Best Crash, Biggest Cheering Section, Best Fuel Economy, Most Patriotic, Best Scouting Theme, Most Realistic, Best Non-Car, etc.)
