Complete and Submit a Final Report

The Bronze Award Final report is used to review and approve troop and individual girl projects. Please designate one adult volunteer to be the project contact and complete the report after discussing the questions with the girls. Submit one Bronze Award Final Report per project.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Girl Award Ceremonies.

To allow girls time to complete Take Action projects that may be affected by coronavirus restrictions, Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska has extended the deadline for girls working on their Bronze and Silver Awards to September 30, 2020.

In addition, Girl Scouts of the USA is further extending the deadline to December 31, 2020, for girls who are bridging. The December 31 deadline includes girls working on Gold Award projects who are bridging from Ambassador to adult and who already have their projects approved.

Approval and Ceremonies

Congratulations on completing your project and making a difference! Now it’s time to be recognized. To participate in a council Girl Award Ceremony, projects must be completed and Final Reports submitted by March 31. If the Final Report is submitted after March 31, girls will be recognized at the following year’s ceremony. Girls have until September 30 of the year they bridge to Cadettes to complete their project and submit Final Reports.

Adult volunteers will be notified once the council has reviewed and approved the Final Report. Upon approval, Bronze Award patches and pins may be purchased at any Spirit of Nebraska Juliette's Boutique or online. Each girl will be invited to attend a council ceremony (held in several locations across the council during May and June) where she will receive the Bronze Award certificate. After the final ceremony, remaining certificates will be mailed to recipients.
