  • Reasons Why I chose to have my den focus on earning the religious emblem of their faith (d) rather than alternate requirement (e):
    • Its easier to organize. There are outside resources to help your den parents
    • you don’t sign off on requirements, the Scout’s religious leader does. Alternate (e) requires the Den leader’s signoff and some participation.
    • It’s the only award beside Arrow of Light the Scout can carry over to Boy Scouts
