Highest Awards

Every year, the Council recognizes girls who have earned the highest awards: the Gold Award, Silver Award and our council’s own Silver Trefoil Award.

While girls can earn these awards year-round, to be recognized in our Council’s Awards Yearbook and be invited to In Your Honor, final reports and paperwork must be submitted by mid-March 2018. Girls who submit after will be included in the 2019 award yearbook.

This is also the deadline forhigh school graduating Gold Award recipients to submit their applications for our Council’s Gold Award Scholarships and the President’s Award.

Bronze. Silver. Gold. These represent the highest honors a Girl Scout can earn.

All three awards give you the chance to do big things while working on an issue you care about. Whether you want to plant a community garden at your school and inspire others to eat healthy for your Bronze, advocate for animal rights for your Silver, or build a career network that encourages girls to become scientists and engineers for your Gold, you’ll inspire others (and yourself).

Also a given: as you earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards, you’ll change your corner of the world—and maybe even beyond. The possibilities are endless.
