Gold Award

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement in Girl Scouting. The Gold Award project should meet an expressed need in the surrounding community, therefore encouraging girls to reach out beyond the Girl Scouting community. The project provides an opportunity for girls to enhance their leadership skills, career interests, and personal values. Completion of the Gold Award allows young women to become a member of the group who has received the highest recognition within the Girl Scouting organization.
