Rovers around the world are celebrating 100 years of Rover Scouting in 2018. As announced last year, the Centenary initiatives will include a Scouts of the World Award (SW Award) – Rovers Centenary special edition badge. Through the badge, which will only be available this year, we are challenging young people worldwide to play their role as active citizens in their communities.
Shine a light on the Rovers Centenary with a special SW Award ceremony!
Since this fanstastic occasion only happens every 100 years, we encourage you to go all out and celebrate! Organise ceremonies at different times or levels, such as the national and/or district level(s). National Scout Organizations are encouraged to organise SW Award ceremonies to highlight the great projects launched this year, that changed local communities for the better.
