Girl Scout Gold Award Go Gold

Gold Award

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Once achieved, it shows colleges, employers, and your community that you’re out there changing the world.

Join a century of women who have done big things. Learn about scholarships for Gold Award Girl Scouts, the history of the Gold Award, and the benefits of going Gold.

GSCI requires an interview to take place before completing the project proposal.  Contact Jessica Foster to set up an interview. Once you have conducted your interview, the application must be submitted on-line at  Go Gold Online for the Gold Award Committee to review. Due to the fact that the committee meets once a month, it may take a few weeks for the committee to review.

After the project is completed a final approval is required. Final reports are due by February 15th if a girl wants to be honored at the spring ceremonies. Final reports must be submitted by September 30th of the year of graduation. Each year Gold Award Girl Scouts are recognized at ceremonies and ask to represent the council at various times throughout the year. We are proud of their accomplishments and want to share their story and inspire others. 

The Gold Award recognizes leadership projects not community service projects (there are community service bars for that). All projects must make a lasting difference, ensuring sustainability while putting the Promise and Law into action and inspire others.
