I am 13 years old and I have been a member of the Denholme Scouting Association since i was 9 years old.
I was nominated by my Scout leader to compete for a place to represent my county on the Scouts Inernational Jamboree 2019 (International Scout Jamboree) which takes place in West Virginia, United States of Amercia. I felt really honored and proud to be chosen to compete for this amazing experience but also a little nervous about what was going to happen.
My first challenge was to win a place to represent my district, by doing this I could then go on and compete for a county place. There were 100 scouts competing over 2 days, I was very nervous and my hands were shaking.
One the day there was no-one I knew so it was all down to me. I faced lots of different challenges which required confidence, problem solving and good communication skills, i felt so lucky when I recieved the phone to say I had been selected to represent the district and was put forward to compete for a County place, one step closer to America!!!!!!!!
Working upto the last selection there was some hard work to do. I produced a poster about myself and the Jamboreee to try and show my commitment.
