Guide Award Scheme

100 Years of Guiding

100 Years of Guiding Girl Guides Australia celebrated 100 years of Guiding across Australia from September 2009 to February 2011.

Guide Science and Technology Challenge

There are many tasks that can be used for this challenge. Some of the ones you can do as part of a JOTA or JOTI activity are listed below.

Guides can complete these activities and use them as part of the Science and Technology Challenge badge. For other ideas have a look at the Girl Guide Association website.

Choose four challenges:

Amateur Radio Foundation License

In 2005, the Australian Communications and Media Authority, ACMA, introduced an Amateur Radio Foundation license, targetted at a younger and less technical audience.

The examination format for this license is typically a two day training seminar, followed by a multiple choice test and a practical examination.

Many amateur radio clubs run these classes, such as the Manly Warringah Radio Society.

The Foundation License is going to be the perfect license for Scouts and Guides to get started in Amateur Radio.

Friendship Project

As part of the 2007 Friendship Project each troop was given a little "friend". They had to write on them what they thought friends and friendship meant.
