How Do I Earn the Award

The award is challenging but flexible. Its requirements sufficiently stringent but attainable.  The award aligns with existing Scouting activities and advancement requirements.

“Participants doing their award become world ready,” says Elizabeth Higgins-Beard, CEO for The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award USA. Young people will develop “resilience, leadership, teamwork abilities, problem-solving skills and confidence — all while having fun and engaging in their community.”
