The Award in Action during COVID-19

The flexible program of the Award means that you can still work towards achieving your goals and your Award while at home! If your Award activities have been cancelled or your goals are no longer attainable due to COVID-19, we encourage you to try a new activity or update your existing goal  so it continues to be challenging and realistic.   

Download our quick at a glance reference card for doing your Award at home. We encourage everyone to follow your current local government guidelines.  

Temporary Changes to our Program

To support our participants and Award Leaders throughout COVID-19, we’ve implemented, temporary program changes. Award Leaders can find an outline of the COVID-19 temporary Award changes within the Award Leader Resource Portal. Participants, please contact your Award Leader if you are looking for support or more information.  

Temporary program changes should only be used when absolutely necessary. They will be in effect until Dec 31, 2022 and will be reviewed periodically. If you have any questions, please reach out to support@dukeofed.org
