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.
When Girl Scout Cadettes focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference, they gain the confidence and skills that will catapult them to lifelong success. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest honor a Cadette can achieve. Download the Cadette Workbook for Earning Your Silver Award to find out how.
Ready to start your Silver Award? You and your team must submit your Girl Scout Silver Award Proposal to get started! Use this Silver Award Proposal Information Sheet to get the information you need to complete your proposal.
