Pinewood Derby

What is the Pinewood Derby (PWD)?

For those of you who are new to Cub Scouting this year, the Pinewood Derby is a signature Cub activity where scouts convert a wooden block into the car of their dreams.  On race day everyone gathers for a fun day of racing competition. 

Participating scouts will all receive a Pinewood Derby Patch. The top three fastest cars will be awarded gold, silver and bronze medals. There will also be awards for the “Most Creative” cars built by Cub Scouts, based on the design, construction, finish and overall appearance of the cars.
