Silver badges are awarded to Blue badge holders who go on to make an extra effort. For example, if you won a Blue badge for an interesting letter or email, you could win a Silver badge by sending us something different such as a make, picture or a poem.
Fan Club badge
Purple Fan Club badges are awarded for joining the Blue Peter fan club and answering some questions about the show and the website.
The Music badge is a very special badge, designed by superstar Ed Sheeran. It’s awarded to those who show off their passion for music by learning a new instrument or being part of a musical performance.
The Sport badge is awarded for getting active and trying a sport or physical activity that you have never tried before. Each year a new limited edition badge is released that is only available during the summer. This means you can collect a new Sport badge every single year!
Applications for 2020 are open now and will close in late September 2020. Due to current circumstances, earning your Sport badge is a little different this year, so remember to read all the instructions.
Orange badges are given to winners and runners up of Blue Peter competitions. To have a chance of winning one of these badges you have to enter a Blue Peter competition, which only run during certain times in the year. For more information on competitions and whether a competition is open or not visit the competition page.
Gold badges are very rare indeed. Each year only a few are awarded in exceptional circumstances for outstanding achievements, for example being solely responsible for saving someone’s life, or showing amazing and unique bravery, courage and citizenship. (You must already have at least one of the other badges).
On very rare occasions, extraordinary adults can also be awarded a Gold Blue Peter badge. Recipients are high profile personalities who are considered to be role models, inspiring the nation’s children.
