Highest Awards

The Gold Award is the highest in Girl Scouting. Our Council has 203 Gold Award Girl Scouts. These Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors demonstrated exceptional leadership and tenacity in completing their projects despite current challenges. In May 2020, we hosted a virtual “In Your Honor” ceremony, with over 288 households in attendance.

After the event, honorees received a mailing with the event yearbook, certificate, patch, and commemorative graduation cord to wear proudly at their school ceremonies. Also, Girl Scouts Nations Capital awarded 14 scholarships to graduating high school Gold Award Girl Scouts.
