Winning design for Cub Centenary Badge announced

Cub Centenary badge

Amber Pheasant, a Cub Scout from Nottingham, has won a competition to design a badge celebrating the Cub Centenary in 2016.

Following more than 7,000 entries, Chief Scout Bear Grylls chose the winning design to represent one hundred years of Cub adventure. The Cub Scout Centenary Badge will be worn by Cub Scouts across the UK during the celebrations.

Fantastic design

Ten-year-old Amber, who attends 1st Burton Joyce Cubs, said: 'I'm so excited about winning the competition. It's amazing that Bear Grylls chose my design and that it will be worn by Cubs all over the country.'

Bear Grylls commented: 'I’m so proud of all the talented young people that entered this competition. It was hard to choose a winner but Amber’s fantastic design really stood out. A big well done to Amber and everyone who entered.'

Fun and adventure

Cub Scouting is all about fun and adventure and will celebrate its 100th birthday in 2016. Just one year after its launch by Baden-Powell in 1916, 30,000 young people had joined. There are now over 150,000 Cubs in the UK and more waiting to join.

We’re planning an exciting programme of celebrations for the Centenary in 2016 – watch out for more information.
