Gold Award Workshops

Thinking about earning your Gold?  Want to know more about the process before you dive in? Come and learn about the Girl Scout Gold Award and GSCNC Panel process at a Workshop led by a Girl Scouts Nation's Capital Gold Award Panel Member. Each workshop covers the requirements of the award, submission deadlines, tips and tricks for planning a successful project, and more.  Attending a workshop is the absolute best way to get ready to go for the Gold.

Come prepared for an informative session with your copy of The Gold Standard, your Gold Award Toolkit, a pen and paper.  See registration information below.  As worksheets and handouts will be given to girls at the Workshop, all girls must register so that we can prepare the correct number of materials.

Please note: Unless otherwise stated on the registration website, all workshops listed on this page are for GIRLS ONLY.
