SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Some local scouts are already winners. Monday night, Boy Scout Troop 214 celebrated the accomplishments of the scouts, and auctioned off cakes made by the boys, who had a little help.

Some boys earned their first badge, which is the Bobcat. A few earned the Tiger Cub badge by getting a year-long program done early.

This is also a way for the troop to recognize the families.

"Scouting isn't just about the scout. Scouting is about the family and giving us an opportunity to celebrate the families that support these scouts and bring them every week to a meeting or the parents that are here helping us plan the events going on," said Laura Stokes, Troop 214 Cub Master.

The boys who earned badges are in first through fifth grades. The troop has about 25 scouts in it, which is more than last year.
