Three Awards ... Five Sections
The Award is a balanced programme with a framework of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold; and five sections: Service, Skills, Physical Recreation, Adventurous Journey, plus the Residential Project at Gold level. Entry into the Award is voluntary and there is no competition between participants.
For each level, you have to complete the requirements of the five sections.

“...sounds harmless you think to yourself, ‘why not?’ a few years later you’re at Government house shaking hands with Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex…Who would have ever imagined that years of grueling hikes, busted knee caps and lost toenails would have landed you in a place only few can imagine.”
