The Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through remarkable Take Action projects that have sustainable impact in their communities-and beyond.
Silver & Bronze Awards
Because Bronze and Silver Awards are not approved, nor awarded by council, Troop Leaders are not required to submit final reports for review. That said, we highly encourage submission of Highest Award final reports
Badges & Other Awards
The insignia1 on a girl’s uniform are a record of her adventures and accomplishments as a Girl Scout. Insignia is the general term for all official items that girls and adults can wear on their uniforms. All official awards are worn on the front of the sash or vest.
Take Action projects encourage you to think about the big picture and to address problems in such a way that they do not reoccur. Most important, your Take Action project changes the world in a meaningful way.
