Everything started with an ingenious idea: an alternative bag to the heavy and bulky satchels – but rather lightweight and colourful. Based on this idea, the first Scout was developed in 1975. Today, far more than 10 million children have attended school with a Scout, and the brand Scout has become a synonym for schoolbags. Many of the children from that time are parents themselves today – and want to give their children that exact same good feeling as they experienced years ago on their way into a new, exciting stage of life with a Scout.
As "Brand of the century" Scout represents a whole category: schoolbags. The award stresses the significance and importance of the Scout brand. The "brands of the century" were created in 2003 and have since then been awarded every 3 years. The publishing company honours the estimatedly most powerful German brands in the market which were able to communicate in a unique manner quality and brandhistory to the consumer.
