Queen’s Scout Award

The Queen’s Scout Award is the highest honour in Scouting and is awarded for outstanding personal achievement.

This honour is achieved by young people aged between 16 and 25 who have completed a range of challenges, which includes service to their community, completing an expedition in wild country, undertaking a five-day residential project in an unfamiliar environment and learning a new skill or developing an existing talent.

Queen’s Scout Award recipients are invited to the annual parade at Windsor Castle to celebrate their achievement.

If you are interested in working towards your Queen’s Scout Award (and for anyone who is already working on it) make sure that you register your interest here.

That will make sure that there will be people there to support you through the process and with your work. It will also be a way for you to find and read about the many resources that are available to help you work out what to do. Let your Explorer or Network Unit leader know that you are doing it.

They, together with our Assistant County Commissioner for our Top Awards, Maxcine Hill, are there to answer any questions you may have.



Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
