The Baden Powell Award is the highest award attainable by Rover Scouts in the Singapore Scout Association. It is the pinnacle achievement Rover Scouts can attain in their Rovering journey.
The award is named after Lord Baden Powell, founder of the Scout Movement, and the naming of the award aims to remind recipients of their responsibility to uphold the ideals espoused by Lord Baden Powell in their thoughts, words and deeds.
Rovers pursuing the Baden Powell Award may only qualify if they have demonstrated enough commitment to fulfilling the award’s requirements. This includes reflection journalling, positive peer reviews, and clearing an interview with a panel of commissioners. The process ensures that awarded candidates have a firm grasp of the Scout Method and the other values shared by Lord Baden Powell.
