On 1 August every year we celebrate Scouting’s birthday by awarding an Honorary Scout Activity Badge for a particular accomplishment or achievement. The accolades will be presented to public figures who have achieved something special across a range of activities.
The eclectic shortlist of nominees has been drawn from members' recommendations and features athlete and double Olympic champion Mo Farah (Athletics Badge), TV presenter and broadcaster Jameela Jamil (Communicator Badge) and Sir Alex Ferguson (Sports Enthusiast Badge)
Previous winners of Scout Birthday Badges include Clare Balding, Miranda Hart, and David Walliams.
‘Our Birthday Badge Award shortlist is absolutely chock-full with inspiring people and we can’t wait to find out the results,' said Beth Gooch, Ambassador and VIP Liaison Manager for The Scout Association. ‘Make sure your favourite personalities are rewarded and remember to keep an eye out on 1 August for an announcement about the winners.'
Help this become the biggest Scout Birthday Badges Awards yet by getting young people from all sections to go online and vote.
