The construction of your report may well be a major element of your venture. Diary, scrapbook, slideshow, video, digital book? The choice is yours and is limited only by your imagination and skill.

However, please note:
Awards The Trust will not normally contribute to the cost of a whole gap year, foreign exchanges, school course-work, a simple holiday, or a project managed and planned by school or other organisation. (Organised courses and camps come into this category but, in some circumstances, may offer special opportunities for independent planning and initiative. Much would depend on your approach.) In general, the Trust is looking to help with independently-planned expeditions or enterprises - the kind of thing you might use part of your school summer holiday for - end of Year 10, perhaps, or after GCSE or A level.
Awards made for independently-planned projects which do not involve time away (i.e. Home-based) may take into account running expenses and the purchase of materials. The Trust does not usually contribute to the cost of permanent equipment.
Parents of younger candidates will be aware of the possible dangers and yet still wish to encourage a worthwhile venture. If parental involvement is essential, trustees will need to be assured that the candidate will be directing the project and making all the arrangements for its completion, and that any parental involvement is confined to a 'care and protection' role.
