Making informed decisions on how to do the Centenary Challenge badge


  1. The Leaders received the Youth members copies of the Centenary Challenge badge book.
  2. Discussion on how, when and where the badge syllabus may take the leaders and the District was held.  The Leaders were willing to support the Guides to revitalize their Guide meeting times knowing that when the Youth members are really enjoying themselves they and their happy parents bring in more families and prospective Guides.
  3. Also the information of all challenges was to be written onto ‘ours2share.wordpress.com’ in order to keep all parents, team, Leaders and Guides informed. Thus for filling part of the District Upgrade.
  4. The following meeting was with the Guide Youth members themselves.  So as part of the program each Guide was given their complimentary copy of the Centenary Challenge book.
  5. A discussion was held with the Guides. The Leaders were excited to hear what the Guides wanted to do.
  6. Firstly what was the Centenary Challenge badge.  How did this badge come around.
  7. Then the levels of the Centenary Challenge were explained to the Guides.
  8. The decision to complete the Centenary Challenge Badge by working through various colors until first level was completed was a novel way sorting out the Programing. The Guides wanted these colors completed during the Guide programs, events, service and activities.
  9. What color came first is another decision made by the Guides.  It was also understood that sometimes the progressive pattern may be muddled up but each of the first level sections and questions would be incorporated.
  10. How would the knowledge gained from the Centenary Challenge Badge be implemented into the Guiding program by the Guides themselves?
  11. Once earned the Guides would know that they had challenged themselves in different ways.
