THE Glenore Grove Scout group continues to excel, with three more youth awarded top honours.

Glenore Grove Scouts Dillion Sykes, Harley Davis and Jonathan Thompson were proudly awarded the Australian Scout Medallion on Friday night in front of family and fellow scouts.

Scouts Queensland Moreton Region Commissioner Ken Millers said the awards were the culmination of three years' worth of hard work.

"It's an outstanding achievement for an individual to receive," Mr Millers said.

"This is the highest award that can be achieved at the scout age group level.

"It requires a lot of dedication and concentration.

"It's a lot of hard work and it puts them out of their comfort zone and provides them with a challenge."

Mr Millers said within the Moreton region, only 20% (or one in every five scouts) actually achieve the rare honour.

Among the activities to achieve the medallion, the three scouts had to hike upwards of 60km across three days.

Mr Millers also commended the scout group for its continued excellence in scouting over the years.

"The amount of times I've visited the Glenore Grove scout group in the last 12 months is remarkable and it's simply a show of some fairly outstanding achievements which have been done by youth members of Glenore Grove," he said.

"One of the great parts about Glenore Grove is you get to watch the numbers of the youth members rise and you look at the numbers grow and that's a very good indication of their success." 

The Glenore Grove Scout group is one of the largest groups in the Moreton region with a membership of more than 40 kids.
