The Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. Girls assemble a team and put a plan into action to take on issues like homelessness, literacy and more.
Every year, girls have the chance to change their community in a big way through Girl Scouts’ highest awards.
At the Girl Scout Cadette level, the Silver Award gives girls the opportunity to make a chancge in their schools and communities. Last year in our Council, 899 girls made the world a better place through their Silver Award projects.
Finally, the Girl Scout Gold Award is the culmination of a girl’s Girl Scout experience. Earned by Seniors and Ambassadors, the Gold Award requires girls to devote over 80 hours of work on a project that’s important to each girl. 163 extraordinary young women earned the Gold Award in our area last year.
Unique to our Council is the Silver Trefoil award, which honors Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who serve at the Girl Scout Community, National, and Global levels.
Each year, we feature girls who earned their Silver Award, Gold Award or Silver Trefoil Award in our Council’s Awards Yearbook. To be included in this year’s yearbook, and invited to the In Your Honor ceremony, final reports and paperwork must be submitted by Wednesday, March 15.
Girls who submit after March 15 will be included in next year’s yearbook. March 15 is also the deadline for graduating Gold Award recipients to submit their applications for our Council’s Gold Award Scholarships.

Girl Scout Week
Every year, Girl Scouts celebrate what it means to be a leader during Girl Scout Week, which starts with Girl Scouts’ birthday on March 12 and ends with Girl Scout Sabbath on March 18.
This year, Girl Scouts’ birthday is also Girl Scout Sunday, which gives girls an opportunity to attend their place of worship and be recognized as a Girl Scout. Girls can also earn the My Promise, My Faith pin by carefully examining the Girl Scout Law and tying it directly to tenets of her faith.
