Girl Scouts' Highest Awards

Highest Awards

Bronze. Silver. Gold. These represent the highest honors a Girl Scout can earn.

All three awards give you the chance to do big things while supporting an issue you care about. You might plant a community garden at your school or inspire others to eat healthy foods for your Bronze, advocate for animal rights for your Silver, or build a career network that encourages girls to become scientists and engineers for your Gold. Whatever you choose, you’ll inspire others (and yourself).

GSofSI Gold Award Girl Scouts

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, is a top-tier credential for girls as they enter their post-high school lives, enabling them to distinguish themselves in the college admissions process, earn college scholarships, and enter the military one rank higher.

Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award requires a suggested minimum of 80 hours of service - no small feat for busy high school students! Girls must also ensure their projects are sustainable by creating a plan for the project to continue to make an impact over time. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn.
