Life Skills Award
Many kids graduate high school and enter the “real world” completely unprepared to take on the simplest tasks. The Life Skills Achievement Award was written to make sure that kids can perform skills that they will need later in life. These skills include household chores, personal grooming, physical skills, safety skills, financial skills, navigational skills, and basic living skills. To earn this award, kids must be able to complete each skill at their current level as well as all skills of any lower level. If a child has a handicap that makes it impossible for them to do a particular task, they may substitute that task with something similar within their capabilities. They may also substitute a task if they have religious restrictions, such as not eating meat. If substitutions are made, please notify Quest Clubs so that we can share your ideas with others. Keep in mind the idea behind this award is for girls to become proficient in each these skills, not simply perform them one time. (Make sure to follow all state and local age laws involving any of these requirements.) We highly recommend that every Quest member earn this award at every level of Quest.
