VICTA Young Achievers Award

Young Achievers Award

Create

The fourth and final theme of the Young Achievers Award is Create. Time to get your creative juices flowing!

To earn your fourth pin badge, you need to complete 3 creative tasks between October and December. As the year draws to an end, find inspiration in what you’ve achieved so far!

The set VICTA create activity you are required to complete is…

Enter the VICTA Christmas decoration competition!

Enter our ‘Tree for Treats’ Christmas decoration competition! Your decoration will need to be hand made and able to be hung on a tree – other than that you can be as creative as you like! When making your decoration, really try and think about the added sensory elements it can have so that everyone can enjoy it! Make sure you send yours in before the closing date on 22 November 2023.

Find out how to enter on the VICTA website!

Enjoy last year’s gallery for inspiration.

We’ve put together some activity ideas and opportunities for the Create theme below to help you get started. Don’t forget, if you’d like to come up with your own ideas, that’s brilliant too. Once you have completed 3 tasks, complete the evidence submission form at the bottom of this page so we can see what you’ve been up to.

Make a ‘journey’ stick

Journey sticks are really fun to make and a great way to show an achievement. You can make a journey stick to represent a literal journey such as walk you go on or an experience such as taking part in the Young Achievers Award.
