Badges and Awards

As well as the weekly program of activities. Girl Guides includes a program of optional challenges and awards.  These challenges and awards help girls to develop their skills, improve their confidence and try new ideas.

Challenge badges

The challenge badges encourage guides to develop an interest in a specific topic or to develop skills and abilities in a chosen area.


The Junior BP, BP and Queens Guide Awards recognise an ongoing commitment to Girl Guiding.
