After completing the fifteen Achievements, the Tiger Cub is awarded the Tiger Cub Patch. The patch is affixed to the reverse side of the Tiger Cub Totem until he advances to the Bobcat Rank and begins working on his Wolf Rank. At that point the Tiger Cub and Bobcat Rank patches are sewn on the Blue Cub Scout Uniform shirt.
Also, after completing the achievements, the Tiger Cub can be awarded Tiger Track Beads, which are YELLOW disks attached to the Totem. One bead is awarded for each group of TEN Electives the Tiger Cub completes. A boy can work on both Achievements and electives concurrently, but he can't receive Tiger Track beads until he has earned the Tiger Cub Badge.
