Inspiring and encouraging others: The Commander Bruce Award 2023


We want to celebrate those across Hampshire who inspire and encourage others.

The Commander Bruce Award is back and we need your help.

This year there's six awards with a combined prize pot of £1,000 but we need your nominations from every area of Scouting across Hampshire. Can you help us find any of the following?

A Fundraising or Campaigning Champion for someone who has raised money or awareness for a worthy cause over the last year.

An Adventurer Award for someone who has completed an inspiring adventure or challenge over the last year.

A Local hero for someone who has made a significant contribution to their community or undertaken a 'heroic' act.

Our Leadership Award is going to someone who has inspired and led other scouts to achieve something incredible.

The Best Team or section or group who have worked together to achieve something amazing and/or inspiring.

Finally our judges will be picking an overall Scout of the Year from the nominees in the categories above.

How to nominate

Any adult in Hampshire Scouts can nominate a young person who meets the criteria using the form linked below. Be quick, nominations close on the 20th May 2023.

About the award

Now in its tenth year, the Commander Bruce Award may have changed in that time but has always focused on celebrating those who inspire others. You can read more about the history of the award on the Hampshire Scout Heritage site.

The nominees will be judged by our experts including the County Youth Commissioner, the Deputy County Youth Commissioner, Deputy County Chair and two youth members of the Bruce Award organising team. Nominations opened in mid March and closes on Monday 15th May with the winners decided shortly after and announced on Sunday 29th May in Hampshire Scouts Update. Their awards will be presented at the Hampshire Scouts AGM on Sunday 25th June 2023 at Ferny Crofts Activity Centre
