Why Do Scouts Wear a Uniform?

Wearing uniforms has been a method of the Scouting movement from the beginning. Decades of experience show uniforming to have many benefits, including these:

The uniform represents a democratic ideal of equality. Kids from various cultures and different economic levels wear the same uniform and cooperate as equals.

The uniform identifies a child as a member of the Cub Scouts. Badges on the uniform tell other members that he belongs to their den, pack, and council. The uniform itself identifies a good citizen to the entire community.

The uniform displays badges and other awards so the accomplishments of each Cub Scout can be immediately recognized.

Wearing a uniform is a constant reminder to each Cub Scout of his commitment to the ideals and purposes of Cub Scouting: duty to God, loyalty to country, and helpfulness to others.

For these reasons, among others, all parents should emphasize to their Scouts the importance of wearing the correct and complete uniform on all suitable occasions.
