Girl Scouts are socially conscious, problem-solvers
The Gold Award is the highest earned achievement in Girl Scouting and we believe these are the Girls the World Needs. Gold Award Girl Scouts lead change in their communities and around the globe. When they see a problem, they look for a solution.
Last year, the Gold Award was earned by 225 Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors, the highest number of girls in a decade. The Gold Award not only affirms a girls’ ability to lead positive social change, but it also opens doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities.
Girl Scout progression enables girls to take on leadership at every level. Girl Scout Juniors worked as a team, identifying issues and taking action to improve their community to earn the Bronze Award. With more independence, Girl Scout Cadettes worked as a team or go solo to earn the Silver Award. Unique to Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital is the Silver Trefoil Award which recognizes a Girl Scout’s service to her community, the Girl Scout community and world.
