Recognising achievement

Rewarding the achievements of young people in your Group can sometimes be tricky.

To help you suitably recognise the accomplishments of your young people in a fun and engaging way, we’ve compiled some suggestions below.

Good behaviour

Scout of the week/month: Such recognition and status will provide the young person with a sense of pride and appreciation. It will not only encourage them and others but it will help them maintain a steady progression.

Tokens: Award your Scout(s) a token. These tokens can be pieces of laminated card with your section and Group logo printed on it. For each token the young person receives, they are a step closer to obtaining the grand prize, which could be a trophy.

End-of-meeting games: Allow your young person to choose what game the section can play at the end of the next meeting.

Blanket badges: Award your young people badges for good behaviour (many fun badges are available from Scout Shops). This idea is perfect for Beavers and Cubs; you could even turn this into an activity, eg sewing on your fun badges for the Home Help Badge for Cubs.

Conquering fears

Certificates: Use our template certificates from the Print Centre. These allow you to customise the certificate to suit your individual needs.

Trophies: Trophies are a great way of recognising outstanding achievements and are ideal for all sections. A wide range of trophies are available from Scout Shops.

Challenges

Certificates: Use our template certificates from the Print Centre. These allow you to customise the certificate to suit your individual needs.

Congratulation letters: These have been designed to be awarded by the GSL/DC/CC. They are available from the Print Centre and are the ideal way to recognise outstanding achievements.

Invitations: Template invitations are available from the Print Centre. These should be sent on behalf of the GSL/DC/CC.

Remember that you can use any one of these ideas for any achievement gained.

If you have any questions, email the Programmes Team.
