The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouts.
Open only to girls in high school, the Girl Scout Gold Award is the most prestigious award in the world for girls—and the most difficult to earn—and it’s only available to Girl Scouts. As a Gold Award Girl Scout, you’re challenged to change the world—or at least your corner of it.
By the time you put the final touches on your project, you'll have solved a community problem—not only in the short term, but for years into the future—and you’ll be eligible for college scholarships.
Our local Gold Award Girl Scouts are changing the world! Take a look at our 2016 recipients and be inspried to change your community today.
