When turning in your Gold Award Proposal you can have an In-Person Presentation or choose to participate in the Proposal-Only process. If you wish to present to the Panel, you must schedule your presentation by 5pm on the first working day of the month.
Contacting the Gold Award Panel
Want to earn the Gold, but just don't know where to start? Do you have specific questions about the Gold Award Panel? Interested in earning the Gold, but the proposal seems like a huge task?
The first step is to go to a Gold Award Workshop. Done that, and still have questions about the Gold? That's fine! Click on the name of Gold Award Panel Chair of the regional panel nearest you to send her/him an email. The Panel Chair will be able to work with you to get your initial questions answered before you submit an official proposal.
Please note: While the Panel Chair will do her or his best to help you with your questions and project ideas, your proposal will still need to be reviewed and approved by the full Gold Award Panel.
Girl-Led: The Gold Award process, as you know, is girl-led. This means that you are responsible for writing your proposal, turning in your paperwork, scheduling your presentation and contacting the Panel with your questions. If your leader, advisor or parent has general questions about the process they may contact your regional panel chair or the Teen Program Specialist with those questions. Specific questions related to your project, from approval to implementation, must be asked by you.
Having trouble getting in touch with your local Panel Chair? Contact Page Yarborough, Teen Program Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 274-3336.
