Ignite Award is a challenging program of discovery for young people aged 10 – 14 years and provides a framework to learn valuable skills, be physically active, assist others in the community and experience adventures. It is a great tool for young people to transition into secondary school and fosters positive self development and leadership skills.
There are 4 levels of Ignite Award:
- Levels 1 & 2 (suggested starting ages 10/11 years)
- Levels 3 & 4 (suggested starting ages 12/13 years)
To achieve any level of Ignite Award, young people create a unique program of activities across four activity sections, Physical Activity, Hobby, Volunteering and Adventure. Young people can complete the activities in a single session, however we encourage them to undertake their activities over a period of time.
Young people register through an Award Agent, an organisation that has an agreement to offer Ignite Award to their young people. Usually this is a school or youth organisation such as Bush Rangers or a cadet group.
There are registration fees payable by the Participant upon registering for Ignite Award. The registration fees for 2019 are:
- Level 1 & 2 = $95
- Level 3 & 4 = $95
