Girl Scouts earning their Bronze Award

Bronze Award Girl Scouts

When Girl Scout Juniors team up to make a difference in their community, they learn important leadership skills, discover new passions, and watch how seemingly small actions make a big difference. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Bronze Award—the highest honor a Junior can achieve. Download the Bronze Award guidelines to find out how.

COVID-19 Update

Gold, Silver and Bronze Award Girl Scouts are the youth leaders their communities need to create solutions to the new and ever-changing challenges that arise from this global pandemic.
We recognize the impact of the COVID-19 closures and ‘stay at home orders’ are having on Girl Scouts who want to earn the highest awards. We’re committed to supporting girls with the time and space they need to adjust to these changes, so when they’re ready, they can safely harness their enthusiasm and facilitate meaningful solutions with their communities!

To ensure all Girl Scouts who want to earn the Highest Awards this year have the opportunity, Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines is offering a 3-month deadline extension from September 30 to December 31, 2020 for Girl Scouts who are graduating from 5th grade (Juniors who seek to earn the Bronze Award), 8th grade (Cadettes who seek to earn the Silver Award) and 12th grade (Ambassadors who seek to earn the Gold Award) this year.

These Girl Scouts will bridge to the next program level officially on October 1, 2020 and, without this extension, would be no longer eligible to earn the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, respectively. Girl Scouts should have a project identified, a plan in place and be ready to take action no later than September 30, 2020.
