    Second Class Rank Ceremony 1

    Leader: When the Indian boy prepared for manhood, he was required to go through a stern ordeal testing his worthiness and his fitness for a place among the braves of the tribe. If he passed through the ordeal successfully, he appeared before the chief at the council fire to receive the eagle feather of the brave. As the chief placed in his hands the weapons of his rank, he pledged the new brave to an oath he bound him in honor never to use his weapons in any way that would bring discredit to his tribe or himself.

    Just as the Indian youth went through his ordeal to prove himself, so you have gone through your Second Class rank requirements to prove yourself as a Scout hiker who can care for himself in the outdoors. Just as the Indian youth pledged himself to his tribe, so should you pledge yourself to Scouting and maintain the Scout Oath and Law. In your growth toward becoming a Scout hiker, do you feel that the Scout Oath and Law have become more meaningful to you personally?

    Scout: I do.

    Leader: This rank of Second Class-Scout hikerrepresents to you the opportunities for service to others, as the weapons did to the Indian youth. We place no weapons in your hands, but the honor of all Scouting rests as surely on your shoulders. (Leader presents Second Class badge and congratulates the Scout and his parents.)

    Scoutmaster (to candidates): Once before, you stood before this court and became Tenderfoot Scouts. Time has passed since then. You have used that time well in pursuing Scout activities and knowledge. You are now qualified to assume the title and duties of Second Class Scout. I know that you will wear this Second Class badge as a shield with honor and distinction. To prove that you know the rules by which this award may be worn honorably, you will repeat the Scout Law. Scout sign!
    Candidates (repeat the Scout Law): A Scout is trustworthy ...

    Scoutmaster: Please face the audience, ________________ (name). I present you with this badge. May you bring only credit and honor to it and to your troop.
