On Monday August 3rd, Scouts all over the country participated in Scout Scarf Day. Scarf Day is an annual event where Scouts get to show their Scout pride and increase the public’s awareness of Scouting. Scarves were worn to school, work, playgrounds, tree climbing, to the beach and more!
Scouts New Zealand ran a photo competition on the day, members were asked to submit a photo that fell into one of three categories.
1. Random draw
2. Wear your scarf in an interesting location.
3. A non human wearing a scarf (this category was mostly so our social media person got lots of animal pictures).
Check out the winners below!
There were some very creative pictures submitted and some very cute pets (including some not so impressed cats). You can see all of the entries here or using #scoutscarfdaynz on instagram.
One of our Venturers did some Scout of the box thinking for his Scarf Day photo. Rion Anderson (of Ngaio Scout Group) snapped a pic with Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield!
