queens scout for selby

It was terrific to celebrate the awarding of the Queens Scout Award to Selby local, Jessica Ashburner today at the Selby Scout Hall in Menzies Creek. Jessica, a member of the first Selby Scouts, was humble in her acceptance of this prestigious award.

The award is granted to those individuals who are outstanding senior scouts and was first awarded as the Kings Scout Award in 1910. It is awarded to scouts who excel in physical, mental, social and spiritual development. Jessica is in select company, it is an honour to be awarded a Queens Scout Badge.

Jessica chose her father, Will Ashburner, to present her with her Queens Scout Badge.

Jessica, now a Venturer, undertook the tasks required to obtain her Queens Scout Award at the same time as her VCE, it is a credit to her dedication and commitment to her studies and to scouting. She needed to concentrate on four areas including community, adventuring activities, personal growth and leadership development. The last time the Selby troupe received a Queens Scout Award was in 2001.

Congratulations to Jessica and her proud family, it is great to see your efforts awarded.
