Baden Powell Award
The Baden Powell Award is the highest award attainable by youth members in the Singapore Scout Association. It represents a pinnacle achievement Rover Scouts work towards on their Scouting journey. This award is named after Lord Baden Powell, who was the founder of the Scout Movement, and it is hoped that naming the Award after him will remind award recipients of their responsibility to uphold the ideals espoused by Lord Baden Powell in their thoughts, words and deeds forever more.
Rovers who are pursuing the Baden Powell Award may only qualify if they have demonstrated enough commitment and excellence to satisfy the numerous sections of the award. These include objective selection criteria, positive peer reviews, and clearing an interview with the appropriate commissioners. This process ensures that candidates who eventually qualify have a firm grasp of the Scout Method and the other values promulgated by Lord Baden Powell.
