The Queen’s Guide Award is the highest award you can work towards in guiding. It gives you the chance to develop your skills, give back to guiding and support your local community.


It’s open to members aged 16 to 30 and must be completed within 3 years from the start date or before your 31st birthday, whichever is sooner.

The Queen’s Guide award isn’t just a great achievement to share with other members of Girlguiding. It also shows potential employers and further education organisations you've challenged yourself and achieved goals in lots of different ways.

The programme can also be matched with activities you are already doing in guiding, meaning you can get more than one award for the challenges you are taking on – such as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE), Lead Away permit and going away with license.

What is involved?

The Queen’s Guide award is all about personal challenges and taking part in guiding. It’s made up of 5 sections:

  • Personal development challenge: Develop a skill in or outside of Girlguiding to enhance your personal growth. This could be anything from ballet to circus skills, gardening to playing a musical instrument. And you’ll get to share your skill with others in guiding too!

  • Guiding challenge: Take an active part in guiding at different levels. Make a difference in guiding by doing 4 projects focused on girls, volunteers, growth and retention, and inclusion.

  • Community action challenge: This is your chance to increase your knowledge of an important issue through research and practical activities, then share what you learn with other Girlguiding members.

  • Lead the way challenge: Take on a leadership role in an outdoor environment and try something new and adventurous! You have 3 options to choose from: residential, outdoor activity or expedition/exploration.

  • Social experience challenge: Challenge yourself in a new setting and focus on building new relationships. Experience something you’ve never done before and develop your interpersonal skills by going on a residential or attending an event.
