Jack Petchey Awards

Jack Petchey Awards

Jack Petchey Achievement Award winners are young people who have gone above and beyond to achieve – they may be used to recognise a personal triumph for someone who has faced a challenge, a young person who has pushed themselves outside of their comfort zone, or it may be an opportunity to recognise the outstanding efforts of a team player.

 The Achievement Awards are primarily about recognising those who put in the effort and do their best. – Sir Jack Petchey CBE

Which is exactly what Scouts do! There are two windows a year to nominate outstanding young people. Each award winner will receive a certificate, pin badge and a book from Sir Jack himself. They will also choose how to spend a £250 grant to benefit their Group or section.

All award winners are invited to attend one of the fun ceremonies to be presented with a medallion in front of their families, friends and VIPs.
