Challenge badges have often been debated (including on weekly discussion Weekly Discussion: “Challenge” Badges ) on their role alongside the outgoing programme; their usefulness, their role in the perception of badges and how participation should be recognised and what they represent to leaders in terms of planning and fundraising. But some are now asking, does the new programme with its preprepared cards, standardised way of running that fills the term and different badge structure mean that challenge badges are now a thing of the past? Or do they still have a role to play? What will this mean for units that rely on them for income or have girls used to a pile of badges a term simply for showing up to meetings?
