What Is A Blue Peter Badge?

A Blue Peter badge is an award given to children under 15 years old for completing a postal application or appearing on the show. You can apply for a blue, silver, orange, green, purple, music, sport or gold badge. Each one has different requirements. 

How To Get A Blue Peter Badge

Blue badge – send in a creative contribution. This could be a poem, some artwork, a story or a recipe for example.

Silver badge – awarded to children who do things for others. The silver badge was introduced to celebrate the Blue Peter show turning 100 years old.

Green badge – earn your Green badge by answering super-sustainability questions and uploading your photos and artwork inspired by nature and the environment.

Purple Fan Club badge – awarded for joining the Blue Peter fan club and answering some questions about the show and the website.
