The Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting,
recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through
remarkable take action projects that have a sustainable impact in
their communities and beyond. Mentors work to encourage Girl Scouts
in 9th -12th grade as they embark on the Gold Award process.
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.
