Chief Scout Award (SI)
Chief Scout Award (CBSI)
The Chief Scout Award was the highest award a Scout could get. After working their way through the Pathfinder Award Scheme (The Tracker Award, Explorer Award, Star Scout Award and National Scout Award), Scouts took on a personal project. It is estimated that about only 1 in every 300 Scouts achieve the award.
