Join Girl Scouts of Gateway Council for an afternoon of celebration honoring girls who have earned their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. Since 1916, Girl Scouts have been making meaningful, sustainable change in their communities and around the world. These awards acknowledge the power behind each recipient’s dedication to not only empowering and bettering herself, but also to making the world a better place for others. These young women are courageous leaders and visionary change makers. They are our future, and it looks bright!

The ceremony will take place at Thrasher Horne Center on Sunday, April 2, 3-5 p.m. RSVP is required for award recipients and guests. When registering, please check carefully to ensure all of your information is correct.


New this year, a special Gold Award Reception will be held immediately following the ceremony for Gold Award recipients, three guests and mentors. This reception will take place from 5-6 p.m. RSVP is required; Gold Award recipients will receive information about the reception separately. 

Note: Annual Meeting and the Adult Recognition Ceremony will take place on Sunday, April 2, 1-2 p.m., prior to the YWOD ceremony. If you plan to attend the Annual Meeting and Adult Recognition Ceremony, please register separately for these events here.
