Ignite Award


Ignite Award is a challenging program of discovery for young people aged 9 – 13 years and provides a framework to learn valuable skills, be physically active, assist others in the community and experience adventures. It is a great tool for young people to transition into secondary school and fosters positive self-development and leadership skills.

There are 4mnico levels of Ignite Award:

  • Levels 1 & 2
  • Levels 3 & 4

To achieve any level of Ignite Award, young people create a unique program of activities across four activity sections: Physical Activity, Hobby, Volunteering and Adventure.
