The Queens Guide Award provides Guides with an opportunity for extraordinary personal development and greater self-awareness. Guides will challenge themselves and complete significant goals across a range of different disciplines.
The program can also be cross credited with activities already undertaken in Guiding and also outside of Guiding, meaning Guides can get more than one award for the challenges they take on.
Guides must be at last 13 years of age prior to starting any work on this Award. Guides should have had the experience of working on challenges to broaden their skills and have learnt the processes of choosing, planning, doing and evaluating a personal challenge.

The Queen’s Guide Award (QGA) is an endorsed community program with the School Curriculum and Standards Authority. It contributes to the WACE (WA Certificate of Education) but not to the ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank). Part A – Gold Endeavour counts as 2 units equivalent and Part B – Queens Guide counts as 2 unit’s equivalent. Therefore, the complete QGA counts as 4 unit’s equivalent.
