Awards

Girlguiding awards recognise members and volunteers for excellent or a longstanding service. If you’re in guiding and you know someone who’s made a real difference, why not put them forward? Find out more and download nomination forms on The Guiding Manual.

If one of the girls in your unit is going for either the Queen’s Guide award or the Chief Guide’s Challenge, then you’ll need Girlguiding Scotland’s Queen’s Guide award registration form and Chief Guide’s Challenge confirmation form.

Girlguiding Scotland Growing Guiding award

This new award is for Girlguiding Scotland volunteers who have helped us achieve our access goals by making a difference in their local community.

Helping more girls and adults from across Scotland to access the benefits of guiding is key to Girlguiding Scotland’s strategy for 2019-2021.

Our ACCESS goals are:

  • Every girls and young woman who wants to join guiding in Scotland will have the opportunity to do so
  • Girls and adults from diverse backgrounds and communities across Scotland will want to join guiding
  • Every adult volunteer will receive a warm welcome and an induction specific to their role

This new award is being trialled in 2019 during which there will be two nomination rounds (the deadline’s 30 April 2019 and 31 October 2019). Download the nomination form.
