Girl Scout Gold Award

Go Gold! Girl Scouting's Highest Honor.

As part of a movement of 10 million girls worldwide, you are in an exceptional position to take action to make the world a better place. Using your passion and talents, you will work toward the Gold Award—the highest award a Senior or Ambassador can earn—and join the ranks of generations of young women who have made a difference in their communities both locally and globally.

Open only to girls in high school, this prestigious award challenges you to change the world—or at least your corner of it. By the time you put the final touches on your seven-step project, you'll have solved a community problem—not only in the short term, but for years into the future. The Gold Award is viewed by admissions counselors with great regard; you will be eligible for additional college scholarships and every Girl Scout who earns a Gold Award automatically moves up one rank in the military.
