Scouts and Chilly Moose teaming up for our Planet

Scouts for Sustainability X Chilly Moose Contest

Take your environmental impact to the next level! We might not be able to change the world on our own, but we can certainly make a positive difference when we work together. 

With the help of our partner, Chilly Moose, we want to encourage more Scouting sections to incorporate the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) into their weekly programming. 

By submitting your activities and projects, your section will be eligible to win one of our Chilly Moose grand prizes. In addition, each section that submits will also be entered into a draw for more prizes!

Participation Guidelines

  • Organize within your section an environmental (SDG) project or activity using the Plan-Do-review method.
  • Incorporate the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) from our Scouts for Sustainability program. We have some suggestions for you on this page but there are plenty to choose from on the Activity Finder. You can also create your own.
  • Using the short description box when submitting your activity, we want to know why you chose your project, what impact you think it will have, and how you could measure that. Don’t forget to show us that you’ve been using the Plan-Do-Review method (ideally by attaching a Word document with a more detailed plan – those plans will make the difference for the Grand prizes’ selection). Make sure to add the URL/link to your projects’ social media post and don’t forget to tag @ScoutsCanada and @ChillyMoose when posting. Don’t forget to fill out the form completely before submitting it. Good luck!
  • You can submit your project any time before October 31, 2022. Go ahead and take your impact to the next level by submitting more than one project for more chances to win!
  • Submit your activity here, on our Take Action page using the online activity form (by clicking here or on the "Submit Activity" blue button below). Be part of the change and see on our interactive map all the other Scouting sections making a difference across the country with their projects and positive actions.
  • We will be awarding three (3) Grand Prizes of $1,200 in amazing Chilly Moose gear to sections that have gone above and beyond with their SDG-related projects. Those winning sections will be announced in early November with the help of our Chilly Moose partners. The top 3 sections will win an amazing prize package of Chilly Moose products. (Sections will be able to select the products of their choice.)
  • All sections that submit an activity (respecting the basic requirements stated above) will be entered into a draw for more Chilly Moose prizes! In total, 11 sections will receive $600 in amazing Chilly Moose gear. (Sections will be able to select the products of their choice.) Check out the Chilly Moose site to see what you could win. All winners will be announced in early November 2022.
