About 150 young people from this province will receive Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards on Friday from Princess Anne, the Princess Royal.

About 150 young people from this province will receive Duke of Edinburgh Gold Awards on Friday from Princess Anne, the Princess Royal.

The ceremony will be held at the Delta Hotel in St. John's and begins at 2:05 p.m. The award's program began in 1956 with Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, as chairman.

According to the program's website (, it is a program of activities for young people between the ages of 14 and 25. More than 36,000 young Canadians are involved.

There are three levels: bronze, silver and gold. The gold award is usually presented by the governor general or a member of the Royal Family.

To achieve an award, participants must set and achieve personal goals in four areas: community service, skills, physical recreation and adventurous journey.

The awards program came to Canada in 1963 and runs in 126 countries around the world. It can take several years to achieve all three awards.

It's the first time that gold awards have been handed out in this province since Prince Edward visited in 2005, said Trudy Carlisle, executive director of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards in Newfoundland and Labrador.

"Some of them have completed this about five years ago, but have been waiting for this moment to receive the recognition and live the achievements and have that certificate put in their hand by a member of the Royal Family," said Carlisle.
