On Thursday 26 April, The King awarded diplomas to participants from the Value-Based Leadership course in the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
The diploma presentation began with a speech by Secretary General of the Swedish Scout Movement Maria Graner. Farhad Jabbari, Director of Sats, then spoke about his experiences as a leader. The trained youth leaders then received their diplomas from The King. In his speech, The King said: "Leadership is difficult. There is no instant solution for leadership. As a leader, you will never know everything — but you will learn from your experiences." During the afternoon, a seminar was also held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, which could be followed via Twitter.

The background to the scholarship is The King's commitment to the Scout Movement, and the significance of the leadership training offered by the Scouts to tens of thousands of young people every year. The King's Young Leadership Foundation aims to promote training for young people in leadership skills based on the values of the Scout Movement. This is done by awarding scholarships, support for the Scout Movement's leadership training, and support for young people's development and leadership training within the private, public and voluntary sectors.
