Girl Scout Awards

Girl Scout Gold Award

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouting and can be earned by girls in grades 9 – 12. This leadership award involves earning all awards within two Senior or Ambassador Journeys (depending on the Girl Scout’s grade level), researching and identifying community issues, and developing and implementing a sustainable, 80 hour project that addresses a valid need outside the Girl Scout community. Girls must work on this award individually but can complete the Journey pre-requisites as a troop.  Before starting on the award project, a project proposal must be mailed to the Awards Program Specialist at the Program Center in Sacramento for approval; the process takes 6-8 weeks. After the project is completed a final report detailing the project must be submitted to the Awards Program Specialist. Girl Scouts HCC Council honors girls with their award pin at the Recognition of Excellence Ceremony every May.
