Over a period of two years working for the Award, the girls were required to undertake six elements: community service over a period of six months; GB company service; submission of an in depth project assignment to a high standard; completion of two initiative tests; pass a two hour written study paper and final interview; whilst also playing an active part in life of their church.

The Queen’s Award is the highest award attainable in Girls’ Brigade, run to agreed international standards in GB companies all over the world.
