How Challenge100 Works

C100 how it works

To mark the 100th year of our Founder, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, we have launched Challenge100.

We’re asking people of all ages around the world to create a challenge around the number 100 and raise vital funds for the Foundation and help even more young people – particularly those from challenging or disadvantaged backgrounds – to take part in the Award.

The challenge can be done anywhere and you don’t have to be an Award participant to take part. On your own, as a team or even a whole school. Friends, family, classmates, everyone is welcome!

You’ve got until 30 June 2022 to complete your Challenge100. What are you waiting for?

Feeling inspired?

Choose your challenge:  Pick your activity, using the Award’s sections for inspiration – Skills, Physical Recreation, Voluntary Service and Adventurous Journey. Whether it’s minutes, bakes, words or steps, just make it 100.

Raise money:  Set your fundraising target – and get friends and family to sponsor you.

Make noise:  Share your updates, photos and videos via #AwardChallenge100 and #WORLDREADY – and encourage more people to get involved. The more of us that sign-up, the more money we can raise to help young people transform their lives around the world.

Unlock your pin:  As a special thank you, if you raise over 100 (£, US$, AU$, Can$, Euros) you will receive a special commemorative pin that you can wear with pride.

About The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

Since 1956, The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award has been helping young people to find their purpose, passion and place in the world.

Licenced and operated by The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation, a registered charity, the Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning. It supports millions of young people around the world to step outside their comfort zones, challenge themselves, develop skills – and make a difference to their community. In schools, youth groups, refugee camps to youth offender institutions, to those living in poverty or being confronted by disadvantage – for many, taking part in the Award is life changing.

By raising much-needed funds, you can help us to get closer to our ambition: that every 14-24 year old can experience the Award first-hand, regardless of their background or financial situation. And you can help by signing up for Challenge100.
