Queen’s Scout Award
A chat over dinner between Baden-Powell and King Edward VII led to the creation of the King’s Scout award in 1909. It has run ever since, changing to the Queen’s Scout award in 1952, and is the highest award a scout can achieve.
The royal link continues – achieve the Queens Scout Award and you will be invited to the annual celebration at Windsor Castle.

Achieving Queen’s Scouts
Don’t expect it to be easy as it is scouting’s biggest challenge. You can work towards the award between 16 and 25 years of age, in explorer scouts and/or in network scouts.
There are four main areas; Membership, Nights away, International, community and values activities, and Challenges. The Challenges can be signed off if you hold the Gold DofE award. To complete the award, you do a presentation before sign-off.
