He was a finalist and now he's won the big award.

Jack Millet, a Rover Scout from the 1st Caringbah Rover Crew, South Metropolitan Region, has been named Rover Scout of the Year.

He was one of four category winners of the inaugural award, created by the Scouts NSW Youth Council.

It celebrates young people who demonstrate exceptional contributions in the community through scouting, making a considerable effect delivering on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Last year, Scout representatives from the 170 National Scout Organisations, including Australia, launched Scouts for SDGs at the United Nations.

Scouts across Australia have delivered on all 17 of the UN's SDGs goals which include no poverty, zero hunger, responsible consumption and production, protecting the planet, good health and well-being.

Scout youth members use the SDGs to help design and deliver on challenges and projects that fulfil a key Special Interest Area of the Youth Program, to make a difference within NSW communities and beyond.

The Australian Scouting movement is one of the most active around the world, collectively delivering more than 400 projects against the UN's SDGs so far.

"The Scout of the Year Award is our way of shining the light on some our youngest community role models. Young people like Jack are the future of our country," Scouts NSW Youth Commissioner, Meg Cummins, said.
