Gold Award Girl Scouts
Issues of the world, meet your match.
Due to COVID-19 we’re offering a national deadline extension through December 31, 2020 for all bridging Girl Scouts. Our focus is to give girls the time they need to adjust to all the changes and then to help them safely harness their creativity to brainstorm digital solutions that continue to meet community needs as we navigate this global pandemic.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Once achieved, it shows colleges, employers, and your community that you’re out there changing the world.
Join a century of women who have done big things. Learn about scholarships for Gold Award Girl Scouts, the history of the Gold Award, and the benefits of going Gold.
