Highest Awards | Powering Community

Bronze. Silver. Gold. These represent the highest honors a Girl Scout can earn and a legacy of girls stepping up, speaking out, and sparking change. To earn these prestigious awards, girls tackle an issue they are passionate about to make lasting change.  

This year’s recipients demonstrated exceptional leadership and determination in completing their projects despite the challenges they faced. Awardees received celebration boxes ahead of a virtual ceremony.

“I realized the Gold Award isn’t just about getting an award, but an opportunity to make the world a better place, and yourself a person who can go into the world and continue to make positive change.”
