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:
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
