Medals of Honor
The Girl Scout Gold, Silver and Bronze awards are the highest awards in Girl Scouting.
Girl Scouts of Gateway Council celebrated the accomplishments of this year's Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award recipients at a special Medals of Honor ceremony on December 2 at the J. Wayne Reitz Union on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville. This annual event recognizes Girl Scouts from the region who have earned the Girl Scout Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards.
Sandra Tysver, Girl Scouts of Gateway Council CEO, and GSGC Board members welcomed these outstanding Girls Scouts and their family and friends.
2012 Award Recipients from Gateway Council
255 Girl Scout Juniors (grades four and five) earned the Bronze Award, 78 Girl Scout Cadettes (grades six through eight) earned the Silver Award., and 6 Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors, (grades nine through twelve) earned the Girl Scout Gold Award. Congratulations to all the recipients!
The Girl Scout Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards are the highest recognitions a girl can achieve as a Girl Scout. Nationally, less than 5% of eligible Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award each year. Equivalent in status to the Boy Scouts Eagle Award, the Girl Scouts Gold Award requires a significant amount of personal hours spent on a project that will have lasting impact on the community.
