1.Each colony may enter up to two teams consisting of three Beaver Scouts 7 years and above. The cost is £5.00 per team. This will include a drink and biscuits.

2.The Beaver Scouts must attend in full uniform. They will need a painting shirt or tea shirt to cover their uniform or change into.

3.The challenge will be that each team must make a junk model based on a story, which they are told. After listening to the story teams will have 10 minutes to plan what they are going to make. One hour to make model and 15 minutes to clear up. They will be expected to tell the other teams about their model and why they made it.

4.Most materials and equipment to make the model will be provided but we would like the colonies to provide scissors and pens, also collect lots of junk modelling items to bring as well.

5.The winner of the competition will be the team who scores the most points. The second highest score will be second etc. Points will be awarded by an independent judge in the following categories:

  • General behaviour during the challenge
  • Planning and making the model
  • Actually making the model
  • Team work
  • Interpretation of the story and appropriateness of the model
  • Clearing up afterwards.

The teams taking part will also award points for the quality of the models made by other teams at the challenge.

6.A leader/adult will be required to accompany the team and be able to assist.

Entry for the competition is £5.00 per team. Drinks and biscuits will be provided.

The Beaver Scouts' names aren't needed. Just the number of teams you are entering for your colony. Team numbers to Suzanne Smith s-smith8@sky.com or 9 Rochester Way, Twyford, Banbury OX17 3JU
