The completion of a peak award is a very exciting time for any Scout; it represents a huge amount of work and personal development, normally over a number of years.
Typically, a peak award ceremony will be a fairly significant event for the Scout. When planning a peak award ceremony, it’s best to make sure the Scout has the opportunity to help shape how the ceremony operates so it’s as meaningful for them as possible.
Examples of aspects to consider:
Inviting key people who mentored or supported them along the way
Inviting key Scouting and community leaders to be present (especially for the older Sections)
Holding the ceremony at a location significant to their peak award
Having a joint ceremony with peers who have achieved their peak award at the same time and whose adventures towards their awards have crossed over with their own
Holding the ceremony in a public location
Providing food and/or entertainment as part of the celebration
Including short speeches from the awardee and limited other key people.
