The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a non-competitive program in which challenges youth ages 14-24 to set and achieve personal goals for community service, skills, physical recreation and adventure. There are three Award levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold - each requiring an increasing level of commitment. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award was founded by His Royal Highness The Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1956 in the United Kingdom, was started in Canada in 1963 and began in Newfoundland
and Labrador in 1974.
Leadership is an extremely important part of building and strengthening the future of our communities and the province. The people who do great work without seeking notoriety or public awareness must be acknowledged so that others may seek to emulate their selfless contributions to society. The Volunteer Hall of Fame aims to enshrine the achievements of both individuals and organizations that have set the standards for selfless giving without reward or gain, for all to see.
