Gold Award Girl Scouts
Issues of the world, meet your match.
The Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn, acknowledges each recipient’s power and dedication to not only bettering herself, but to making the world a better place for others. These young women are courageous leaders and visionary change makers. They are our future—and it is bright!
You can pursue your Girl Scout Gold Award if:
- You're in high school (ninth through twelfth grade, or equivalent)
- You're registered as a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador
- You have completed two Senior or Ambassador Journeys OR earned the Girl Scout Silver Award and completed a Journey
As you look for meaningful ways to contribute to your community, you can sharpen your problem-solving skills and expand your definition of philanthropy by learning the difference between community service and Take Action projects here.
Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona's approval is needed prior to
