The Baden-Powell Scout Award (BPSA), or B-P Award, is the highest youth award achievable in the Scout and Guide Movement in several countries. Although, with the withdrawal of the Rover Section from most Scout Associations it has become a less common award, it is still awarded by Guide and Scout Associations in several countries, including Australia, Brazil, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, New Zealand and in non-World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) Associations in the United Kingdom.
Method A 
Method A is the more popular version of the Baden-Powell Scout Award, also known as the "Traditional" Method, as it is more clearly defined with targets for its badges.

- Is a continuously active and useful Crew member, having organised and co-ordinated projects and activities which ideally emphasise the aims of the Rover Section, of service to Scouting, the community and personal development.
- Sets a personal example of the Scout way of life, and living by the Scout Law and Promise.
- Has given outstanding and extensive service as a member of a Rover Crew.
- Has held a position of responsibility outside the Rover Crew on Scouting or another community organisation for a period of at least two years.
- Has been a member of a Rover Crew for a minimum period of three years.
South Africa 
South African Scout Association 
South African Rover Scouts are required to complete four of the seven available Rover proficiency awards in order to qualify for the B-P Award. The B-P Award is awarded after it has been recommended by the District Commissioner, the Rover Scout Leader and the Crew Council who must agree that the Rover has been setting an example of living a lifestyle reflecting the Rover motto of "Service".
United Kingdom 
The Scout Association 
The Scout Association no longer operate a Rover Scout section, having abolished the section in 1964, and they no longer offer the Baden-Powell Award.
Baden-Powell Scouts Association 
The Baden-Powell Award is available to invested Rovers of the Baden-Powell Scouts' Association. The BPSA requirements for the award are similar to the "Traditional" option used by Rovers Australia. The Rover must hold the Scoutcraft Star, Service Training Star, Rover Rambler's Badge and Rover Project Badge. They are also required to show that they have been setting a personal example of the "Scout Way of Life" and to complete an interview with the Chief Commissioner of the Baden-Powell Scouts’ Association.
Girlguiding UK 
The Baden-Powell Award continues on in the Guide programme for those who have been in Guides for at least two years prior to starting on the award challenges. Guides must complete challenges from five different categories known as 'Zones' - Healthy lifestyle, global awareness, discovery, skills and relationships and celebrating diversity. They must also go on a specified residential weekend away from home with other Guides also working to complete their Baden-Powell challenge before they can be given the award.
Hong Kong 
Scout Association of Hong Kong 
Baden Powell Award continues the training progress of the Rover Scout Award. Self planning and managing are pre-requisite to achieve this highest award. During the course from planning to operation, Rovers could equip themselves with a positive value of living, learning Scout knowledge, technique and attitude.
The topics of Baden Powell Award are same as the Rover Scout Award in which Service, Scoutcraft and Exploration are compulsory, whilst Scout Knowledge, Self-development, Interpersonal Skills, Personal Pursuit and Look Wide are optional. Rovers are required to take 3 amongst the 5 options for assessment.
The assessment of the Baden Powell Award is arranged by the RHQC (RS). Certificate and award will be issued when confirmed and approved by AHQ after the recommendation of Regional Commissioner and District Commissioner.
