Ready to help your community and earn one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting? Cadettes can team up with a small group of fellow Girl Scouts or work on their own. To earn the Silver Award, you will research an issue you care about, make a plan to address it, and then take action to improve your community.
Girl Scouts of Central Illinois highly recommends you join us for an Award Chat the first Monday of each month. During the Award Chat you will learn the basic information on each award. Award Chats are free but registration is required. To register, visit the Event Calendar.
