Earning Awards for Girl Scout Cadettes

“In Girl Scouts, leadership isn’t just about building future leaders- it’s about building girl leaders for today.”-Kathy Cloninger, former CEO, Girl Scouts of the USA.

As Girl Scouts we discover, connect, and take action to become leaders that have a voice in our community and work to make the world a better place. 

In the community and within Girl Scouting there are many ways to be recognized for the ways girls go above and beyond. Click the links to the left to find out about awards specific to your Girl Scout grade level. Look below to see what awards are available to apply for within your community.
