Queen's Scout Award
On Friday 17th January, three Voyager Explorers who have been working towards their Queen’s Scout Awards gave their final presentations to their unit and a selection of special guests from 1st Malden (where they are young leaders), Royal Kingston District and the County.
They described their journey through Scouts and what it has meant for them. They spoke about all the opportunities they’ve had for adventure, international trips and the skills they’ve picked up along the way.
The good news is that Emily, Lucy and Lily all intend to continue their Scouting journey, through Network, campsite service crews and helping out at their former Scout group when time allows.
All three completed their Gold Duke of Edinburgh awards with the County last year which accounts for a significant part of the Queen’s Scout Award requirements. As Chief Scout Platinum and Diamond award holders there were only two further projects from the Queen’s Scout ‘International, Community and Values’ list for them to do.
Progress is tracked in the QSA Log and once complete, and signed off by a County Commissioner, this log is submitted to Scout HQ who ultimately give out the prestigious Queen’s Scout Award.
If you’re inspired to go for Scouting’s highest award, you need to be 16 to start and you have until your 25th birthday to complete it. Click here for details.
