To celebrate Scouting’s birthday on 1st August, individuals in the public eye who have made a significant contribution to the communities in which they live and work have been nominated for a scout badge.

People such as the Olympic athletes, who by winning gold in Beijing inspired others to take up sport, or those who might have encouraged others to eat a more healthy and balanced diet.

To generate this initial list of nominations, a mix of youth members and Young Leaders to came up with their own nominations.
