The Girl Scout Gold Award is a national award and a personal challenge that a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador may choose to pursue.
Earning The Girl Scout Gold Award requires a suggested 80 hours of planning and implementing a challenging, large-scale project that is innovative, engages others, and has a lasting impact on its targeted community with an emphasis on sustainability.
Since 1916, the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award, has represented excellence and leadership for girls everywhere!
Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award puts you among an exceptional group of women who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world (less than 1% of all Girl Scouts earn the Girl Scout Gold Award). With talent, passion, commitment and determination, you, too, can make changes in your community and impact people around the World!
