Gold badge

Gold badges are very rare indeed. Each year only a few are awarded in exceptional circumstances for outstanding achievements, for example being solely responsible for saving someone's life, or showing amazing and unique bravery, courage and citizenship. Apply for a Gold badge. (You must already have at least one of the other badges).

On very rare occasions, extraordinary adults can also be awarded a Gold Blue Peter badge. Recipients are high profile personalities who are considered to be role models, inspiring the nation's children.
