The Arkansas Heritage Award is designed to give Cub Scouts recognition for studying prominent sites of historical significance to the State of Arkansas.

By visiting historical sites, buildings, and monuments, Cubs can cultivate an appreciation for the people and events that gave Arkansas the former name "The Land of Opportunity".

A patch can be awarded to each Cub that successfully completes the requirements for the Arkansas Heritage Award. The embroidered patch can be purchased from the Quapaw Area Council office at 3220 Cantrell Road, Little Rock, AR 72202 or by calling 1-800-545-7268 to place an order.
