Some suggestions to help you put together your Gold Award project/portfolio.
1. An introduction. Introduce yourself (where you were born and grew up, where you went to school etc) Mention if you are the holder of a previous Award or Awards. If so, is the Gold Award with the same PAL. If not, who was your PAL for the other Award(s)?
Why you decided to go for the Gold Award.
2.One page (approximately 300 to 400 words) on each section of your Award. The highs and lows
3.Conclude with what you personally got from going for and completing the challenge of the Gold Award.
4.Include things like photographs, copies of certificates attained, route maps etc.
The above is a guideline only. We look forward to receiving your personal account of your challenge for the Gold Award.
Don’t forget to include your Record Book (showing the verifying signatures for each activity and a Completion Sheet (filled in by your PAL) – both of these signed by your PAL to guarantee that the standards of Gaisce – The President’s Award have been complied with in full and that everything agreed for the challenge of the Gold Award has been completed.
