Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association (SSA)!

During the Leadership Kick-Off held in January this year, I spoke about the need to put our youth members at the centre of everything we do. To recognize youth members who make a difference in their community and in Scouting, we will be introducing the Chief Commissioner’s Well-Done Badge (Well-Done Badge).

The Well-Done Badge is presented to youth members who have exemplified the Scout Promise and Law and contributed to the well-being of their unit, school, or community.

Unit Leaders are invited to nominate deserving youth members for the Well-Done Badge for Q2, 2022.

Nomination for the Well-Done Badge is restricted to one nomination per unit. Nomination must be made on the prescribed form and submitted through the Area Commissioner who will endorse and support deserving nominees for the Well-Done Badge. Example of actions that would be suitable for nomination are provided for your perusal.

The badge and congratulation letter can be presented by the School Principal during the school’s assembly (for school units) or by the Area Commissioner during an area event (for open units). The badge can be worn on the uniform by the youth member on the left chest above the Bumble Bee/ Squirrel Badge.

We hope that through this recognition, we can inspire our youth members to fulfil the purpose of Scouting – as active citizens, and responsible members of their communities.

Please submit the nomination form to your respective Area Commissioners no later than 23 August 2022.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your respective Area Commissioner or Area Admin if you need further information.

I look forward to receiving your nomination and reading all about the achievements and contributions of our youth members as they contribute to Creating A Better World.

Thank you.

Yours in Scouting,

Desmond Chong
Chief Commissioner
