Are you in Network? Are you ready to meet the challenge and gain a Top Award in Scouting? The Scouts of the World Award is now available across the UK.
It is an individual award, and the project can be completed at home or abroad. It does not require an expedition. Here is a summary of what is required:
- Be a member of Scout Network.
- Join the SOWA project on the Scout Network Website.
- Attend a residential weekend Scouts of the World Discovery, based on the three themes: development, environment and peace.
- With the support of your mentor, finalise your plans for your voluntary project based on the theme from your discovery weekend.
- Undertake Scouts of the World voluntary service, either in the UK or abroad, lasting a minimum of 80 hours, recording and evaluating your experiences in the participant handbook.
- Undertake a presentation locally.
If you are interested, you can join the SOWA project directly. If you wish further information, you can contact John Buchanan who will feed back information from the recent Top Awards Conference and try to facilitate setting up the residential weekend required. Full details of the award are available on the Scouts UK website.
