Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines takes great pride in recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of the 43 young women who earned the Girl Scout Gold Award in 2012. Congratulations to all of our award recipients for meeting personal challenges and goals while demonstrating leadership, advocacy and compassion.
In the six years since the merger of the two legacy councils in 2007 into Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines, 307 Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors have achieved the highest and most prestigious award in Girl Scouting.
To earn this award, girls must committ to take action and create a lasting change in their communities. It requires that each girl demonstrate significnat leadership, planning and organizational skills. Each year, girls who Go Gold demonstrate extraordinary leadership through individual Take Action projects that provide a sustainable benefit to their community. Gold Award projects can focus on anything from community development to economic development, diaster relief to education, public safety to the environment, health and wellness to veterans assistance.
Since 1916, girls have successfully answered the call to Go Gold, an act that indelibly marks them as accomplished members of their communities and the world. Awarded to fewer than six percent of Girl Scouts annually, each Gold Awardee spends one to two years on her project. Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is proud to welcome these distinguished recipients into the Girl Scout Gold Award sisterhood comprising of approximately one million Girl Scouts.
Congratulations to all of Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines’ Girl Scout Gold Award recipients for achieving their goals and this distinguished honor all while serving their communities.
