Highest Awards

If you've been waiting to finally make a mark on the world,
this is it. welcome.

Girl Scouting's highest awards - the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards - are your chance to make a lasting impact in your community doing something you really care about.

These awards are the culmination of everything you have learned in Girl Scouts and discovered about yourself. We know you want to do good things in the world. Help people who need it most. Protect animals that can't speak for themselves. Be part of something much larger than yourself. 


This is that moment.
