Scouter awards can be used to honor registered Adult Leaders. Most Scouter awards are 'knots' which are representative of pin-on medals, around-the-neck awards, or award certificates, and are designed for the convenience of the wearer. The knots are worn centered on the left side of the uniform, above the left pocket and in rows of three with the bottom edge of the knot emblem s touching the top edge of the pocket flap. Subsequent rows of knots are placed above the initial set, in rows of three and again, at the discretion of the wearer. If medals are worn instead, only five medals may be worn at a time pinned in a single row immediately above the seam of the left pocket. The order of wearing of medals and knots is at the discretion of the wearer.
