Gold Award

Girls who earn their Gold Award are setting themselves up for success in school, friendships, academics, and life in general. Earning the Gold Award sets girls apart from their peers in college applications and resumes. The Gold Award is a leadership adventure that gives girls the opportunity to work individually to complete a project that makes a lasting impact and difference. The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, and nationally only 5 to 6 percent of Girl Scouts earn their Gold Award.

How can I be involved in my daughter's Gold Award?

Girl Scout Seniors (9th and 10th grade) and Ambassadors (11th and 12th grade) are eligible to earn their Gold Award. Parent support is essential for a girl to be successful in earning her Gold Award! Earning the Gold Award is special and unique, as it is completely girl-led; however she will need your support, guidance, and kind words to make a difference in the world. Foster a sense of leadership and pride with your daughter and her award--earning the Gold Award is prestigious and is definitely an accomplishment to be proud of!
