The Queen’s Scout Award is the culmination of everything that Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members have achieved in Scouting.
The Queen’s Scout Award must be completed before a Network Member reaches their 25th birthday. Take a look here for more information and resources including the Reach the Top guide which can be found here. Upon completing the Queen’s Scout Award, which is the highest award for youth members in the UK, award holders will be invited to Windsor Castle to celebrate their achievement.
The Queen’s Scout Award is designed to be challenging but entirely flexible to suit the needs of the young person engaged in it. To complete it, participants must undertake six items from the International, Community and Values (ICV) list.
You don’t have to register to participate in this award; but by letting us know that you are working towards your Queen’s Scout Award, we can better support you.
Register your intention to complete the Award here, and we’ll be in touch to see how we can help.
Activities (including the membership requirement) can count towards the award from the date of registration and back dated up to a maximum of 3 months (but not before your 16th birthday).
Award participants must:
- Be aged between 16 and 25 years old
- Be a member of Explorer Scouts or Scout Network (or both) for at least 18 months
- Be a member of Explorer Scouts or Scout Network at the time you complete the award
