Ignite Award is a unique WA based self-development program for young people aged 9 to 13 years. Ignite Award connects children to community through
volunteering, improves wellbeing through exercise and develops self-esteem through learning new skills and taking part in an adventure.
Ignite Award allows WA children to discover their inner strengths, learn new skills, move beyond their comfort zone, and make a difference in their local community.
Ignite Award is designed around the individual needs of each child, engaging, and empowering them to discover their potential.
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 (1-4) and to achieve any level of Ignite Award, young people create a unique program of activities across four activity sections:
To encourage participation in physical activity and improve performance and fitness
To encourage the development of personal interests and practical skills
To develop and encourage a sense of community spirit and responsibility to others
Encourage a spirit of exploration and increase confidence in unfamiliar places
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. Registration fees for 2022 are:
- Level 1 & 2 = $100
- Level 3 & 4 = $100
