The Chief Scout’s Award is the highest award which can be achieved at the Scout level. It was inaugurated in 1973 by then Governor General of Canada Roland Michener. The Governor General, being the Canadian monarch’s representative in Canada, is also the Chief Scout of Canada.
In order to earn the award, a Scout must earn the Voyageur and Pathfinder Activity Awards which require the Scout to develop citizenship, leadership, personal development and outdoor skills, as well as earn ten challenge badges, at least one in each of the seven categories (athletics, outdoors, home and family, personal development, science and technology, culture and society, and environment); they must in addition hold current qualifications in Standard First Aid, hold the World Scout Environment Badge, investigate and present findings on Scouts Canada’s involvement in World Scouting, design a challenging programme which will require the Scout to excel in each of the four activity areas (Citizenship, Leadership, Personal Development, and Outdoor Skills), including at least 30 hours of additional leadership to others (above those required in the Citizenship Activity area of the Voyageur and Pathfinder Awards).
The 10th Richmond Hill Scout Group congratulates all members who have received this prestigious award.
