The Blue Peter Sport Badge is now open to applications

3 September 2013

Blue Peter have launched a brand new badge to inspire children to get a friend involved in sport.

The aim of Blue Peter's new Sport Badge is to increase sport participation across the country and encourage children to act out the legacy of London 2012. It also marks the badge’s 50th anniversary.

To get a sport badge, children must be aged between six and 14 this summer and prove to Blue Peter that they have been a sport ambassador, inspiring a friend to take part in their sport.

Just ask them to fill in the application form on the Blue Peter website and include a photograph of themselves and their friend taking part. The adult in charge of the sport activity will also need to sign the form. Please send completed forms to:

The deadline for applications is 2pm on the 30th September. For more information please visit the Blue Peter website
