Girl Scout Gold Award
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a girl member can earn. Since 1916, Seniors and Ambassadors (grades 9-12) have successfully answered the call to Go Gold! An action that indelibly marks them as accomplished members of their communities and the world.
Are you ready to begin your Girl Scout Gold Award? Please use the resources below to get started.
- In order to have a successful project and experience in earning this award, attendance at Gold Award Training is required. Look for Silver and Gold 101 training dates on the Activities and Training Calendar.
- The Money-Earning Policies have been updated for Take Action Projects! Contact the Fund Development department at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, before you start your project.
- Submit a Gold Award Proposal/Final Report by the 1st of any month. The Gold Award Committee meets the 2nd Sunday of each month to review the Gold Award Applications. Gold Award Candidates should receive feedback by the end of the month in which the proposal was turned in.
- Your Final Report must be submitted by March 1 of the year to be awarded to receive your award at the Girl Scouts – Diamonds Gold, Silver and Graduating Senior Ceremony.
- If you are not able to make the ceremony, please turn in your Final Report by May 1 of the membership year the project was completed. Please allow 6-8 weeks for pins and certificates to be ready for pickup.
It is the girl’s responsibility to make sure her paperwork was received by the Highest Awards Coordinator. If you have not received an answer from the Gold Award Committee by the end of the month, contact the Highest Awards Coordinator at (800) 632-6894 ext. 3104 or email@example.com. You must receive approval before starting your project.
