Girl Scouts of West Central Florida

Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards

The Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards are the highest awards a girl can earn as a Girl Scout Junior (Bronze), Cadette (Silver) or Senior and Ambassador (Gold). To be eligible, girls must demonstrate outstanding leadership and organizational skills, and a strong commitment to their community. The requirements for the Higher Awards are based on earning Journey Awards.

Many girls in our council have already earned their Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards and have been very successful. They’ve completed numerous Take Action projects which have benefited so many of our communities and truly made them “better places.”  We look forward to seeing many more Awardees in the future. We’ll be highlighting the positive impact our girls can have on their communities, and on their futures as they build the leadership skills that will last them a lifetime.
