Outdoors Queensland Award Winners

Outdoors Queensland promote annual awards to recognise and reward excellence in the outdoor recreation community.

Scouts Queensland was nominated for the Outdoors Queensland, Brisbane City Council Award for Outstanding Achievement (Organisation). This award is open to clubs, organisations and enterprises that have made a valuable contribution to the outdoor community and operate with professionalism and to high standards. 

Scouts Queensland won the award against four worthy finalists. Our submission was centred around the contribution that Scouting@Home had made to the maintenance of an outdoors focus during COVID social distancing and lockdowns. 

Mt Cotton Venturer Scout, Lachlan Wright was nominated for The K2 Basecamp Young Achiever Award. This award recognises the efforts and achievements of an individual new to the outdoor sector; a student, young person or other making a change into the field. Lachlan won the award!

We are very proud of winning these two awards judged by our peers.”
