One of our Cub Scouts has completed all the achievements for the rank of Wolf Cub Scout. Tonight we honor him and his family. Will Cub Scout [name] and his parent(s) come forward.

[Name], according to your Wolf Cub Scout Handbook, you have completed all achievements for the rank of Wolf Cub Scout. I am glad you have attained this honor and hope you will continue to progress through the Gold and Silver Arrow Point electives until you reach the time to start work on the Bear rank. Before you is a picture of the Wolf Cub Scout badge. You may now wear this badge with pride. Also before you is a candle representing the spirit of Cub Scouting. By advancing to Wolf Cub Scout you have demonstrated the spirit of Cub Scouting, so please light the Wolf Candle.

(directed to parents) I want to tell you how much we appreciate the support you have given [name] in his quest for the Wolf rank. Without your guidance, your son could not have reached this point. Cub Scouting is a family program, and that means not only that your son is advancing to the Wolf rank, but that the whole family has taken another step upward, too.

As his Akela, you have the privilege of presenting the Wolf badge to your son. Please pin it on his left pocket until it can be sewn in place.

Now, will all the Cub Scouts in the audience please stand.
Join me in giving [name] a hand for the fine job of advancement he is doing. (Cub Scouts applaud. Scout and parents return to seats.)
