As this is a baking competition without the judges being able to taste/sample the entry, judging will be based on looks, presentation and creativity.
Submissions accepted until Monday 31st May and full details are available on the new Creative Events & Activities page which can be found HERE.
If you ever worked towards or achieved a DofE Award, the award scheme want to hear from you (and if you know anyone else who did, please ask them to get in touch too, including current participants you work with).
Explain how doing DofE helped shape you. Explain the challenges you tackled and the fears you overcame. Describe the spectacular journeys (and the ones in pouring rain). What talents you discovered, the mistakes you made and the friendships that still hold strong. Explain what made you feel nothing could hold you back. The Award Scheme want to collect and share stories that represent the whole DofE experience – the laughs, the challenges, the achievements, the campfire cooking disasters – whatever you remember when you remember DofE. They'll bring everyone’s stories together and use them to inspire more young people to start creating their own memories with DofE. And they'll present a physical copy of the map to the Royal Collection, so the stories can be remembered forever.
The Duke’s idea helped millions of young people to believe in themselves and make a difference to the world around them. So why not share your memories on the DofE site - HERE.
This latest draw for MARCH 2021 was made and witnessed on 1st April 2021 with £240 in prizes
