Earn an Award
Girl Scouts offers awards as a way for girls and volunteers to continue their Girl Scout journey. The Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards are the highest honors a Girl Scout may receive. The Product Programs department also offers the Stellar Seller Award for Girl Scouts who exceed the set cookie and fall product goals. Volunteers may also be nominated for an Adult Award, which honors their continued service to the organization.
Types of Awards
The Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador can earn, a standard of excellence achieved by few. Completion of a Gold Award project means a Girl Scout has left her mark on her community and her world.
The Gold Award must be earned individually, not with a troop. For detailed information about the Gold Award, refer to the Senior or Ambassador Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting book. It is important to note that the project proposal paperwork and an interview must be completed and approval received before work on a project can begin. To schedule an interview, please contact Jenny Matheny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All Gold Award interviews will be held at the Girl Scouts’ Nashville Service Center in front of the Gold Award committee. This committee is comprised mainly of volunteers and a few staff. Interviews are generally hosted twice a month and typically last approximately 30 minutes and are scheduled accordingly. Time slots fill quickly, so please plan ahead for your interview.
Deadline: Paperwork must be received by February 15, 2014 to be included in the Spring 2014 ceremony.
The Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. The Silver Award can be earned individually or in groups of four or less. For detailed information about the Silver Award, please refer to the Cadette Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting book.
All Silver Award recipients will be invited to attend a ceremony in honor of their achievements in the spring. Deadline for paperwork to be included in the Spring 2014 ceremony: February 15, 2014.
The Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn and can be earned as an individual or as a troop. For detailed information about the Bronze Award, refer to the Junior Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting book.
Deadline: Girl Scout Juniors in 5th grade have until September 30 of each year to turn in final paperwork.
The Stellar Seller Award is awarded to Girl Scouts who sell $1,000 or more in the Fall Product Program, which includes magazines, nuts and candy, or to Girl Scouts who sell 1,000 or more packages of Girl Scout Cookies.
