The Queen’s Scout Award is the culmination of everything that Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members have achieved in Scouting. The Queen’s Scout Award is available for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network over the age of 16 and is the ultimate Top Award for all members of The Scout Association to achieve by the time they reach the age of 25. Completion of this award will demonstrate commitment, determination, team work, leadership and will help participants to be more adaptable, confident, resilient and learn new skills for life. All recipients receive a special invitation to Windsor Castle to participate in a parade and be inspected by a representative of Her Majesty the Queen.
