Interpreter Strip   Interpreter Strip Award   Scout Award

This Award is meant for Boy Scouts.
Youth and adult members (Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts, Boy Scouts, Varsity Scouts, Venturers, and Sea Scouts, plus Scouters in all programs) may wear this strip if they show their knowledge of a foreign language or the sign language for the hearing impaired.


The interpreter strips are worn centered above the "Boy Scouts of America" strip on the uniform.

Earn the interpreter strip by:

Earn the Morse Code interpreter strip by:

The requirements are verified by the unit leader, after receiving sufficient evidence of the Scout's or Scouter's ability to read, write, and speak the language. You can use this Interpreter Strip Confirmation form.
The unit leader should note the personal achievement on the local Council's Advancement Report for youth or Training Report for adults and submit to the Council. The unit leader purchases the strip from the local scout shop. If it is a rare language in your area, the strip may need to be ordered from a different council or National Supply Division.

Most Councils do not have a specific application form, but check with your scout shop or district executive to see.

If you earn this strip in Webelos (its part of the Languages and Cultures pin), does it need to be re-earned as a Boy Scout?

davidw - This is not really an 'award'.  It is an indication that the person is a resource with the skill to interpret the specific language.  That person should no longer wear the strip if he is no longer fluent in the language.

Just as other patches and recognitions from Cub Scouts are not displayed on the Boy Scout uniform, I would not transfer this one.  As a unit leader, I would have the scout repeat the requirements since I am the one approving that he can wear the strip.  It should be an easy task for someone qualified to wear the patch, and another opportunity to recognize the scout's efforts.

Follow Me, Boys
