This Award is meant for Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts.
Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts may earn the Recruiter Strip by recruiting other boys to join scouts.
The strip is worn centered directly below the right pocket on the uniform.
There are no formal requirements
for these strips. Each Council establishes the procedure for awarding the strip, so please check with your local council office or unit leader.
Usually, a Recruiter Strip is awarded to a Cub Scout or Boy Scout the first time he recruits a friend, relative, classmate, or other acquaintance to join his unit.
Normally, one strip can be awarded to a boy while a Cub Scout and another while he is a Boy Scout if he recruits at both levels.
The national BSA and local Councils tend to have special recruiting drives for which collector recruiter patches are made available. For example, in 2007, the Centennial Recruiter
program has been going on at the national level with this patch available to scouts that recruit another boy to join. This patch in addition to the recruiter strip is awarded since these kinds of patches are considered temporary patches
Here are a couple more recruiter patches that have been available to scouts...
