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).
Also a given: as you earn one of Girl Scouts’ highest awards, you’ll change your corner of the world—and beyond. The possibilities are endless.

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.
Congratulations to our 2018 Gold Award Girl Scouts!
