Ignite Award

Ignite Award is an exciting program of discovery for young people aged 9 – 13 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 (1-4) and to achieve any level of Ignite Award, young people create a unique program of activities across four activity sections:

Physical Activity

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 2021 are:

  • Level 1 & 2 = $100
  • Level 3 & 4 = $100
