Award Ideas For Guide


Veteran (100+ posts)
Hi All - Hoping someone could help me with an award idea for a Guide who was basically in the right place at the right time during a medical emergency. I don't wish to apply for a guiding star award so was wondering if there is something similiar available that I could arrange myself. Thank you for reading my post.

If you contact your local authority or council they might be able to tell you either of an award they offer or other groups that have recognition for young people, for example the local fire brigade might have a certificate for a girl who acted quickly in a fire.

Alternatively you could set up your own unit award, getting a cup or shield from an engravers (or scoping charity shops). Some units have a “Guiding spirit” award so it can be awarded as needed without being too niche.

Does your Region or county have any local awards that may be suitable ( Region websites sometimes have details)
