Girls' Highest Awards

Through the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards, girls Discover, Connect, and Take Action—which translates into knowing yourself, reaching out to others, and making a real difference in your community.

Once a girl has made the decision to pursue the Girl Scout Gold, Silver, or Bronze Award, her next step is to complete and send in the Girl Award Notice of Intent.  The letter does not require girls to earn an award, but helps your council provide support along the way.

Girl Awards at a Glance

This helpful chart summarizes what we expect girls to achieve in a successful Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award project.  See how each award includes the same key parts, but girls' leadership skills and expectations advance as they gain experience and are ready to take on a bigger challenge.  We strongly recommend you use this chart to keep your project on track. 


Another helpful resource: Find out the difference between Community Service Projects and Take Action Projects.




Girl Scout Bronze Award

Girl Scout Juniors, grades 4-5

Girls work together as a troop or group to brainstorm a fresh solution to an issue in their community, then put their plan in action as a team.  Each girl puts at least 20 hours of work into the group's project.  She completes her own Final Report to reflect on what she learned.  Find the requirements to earn the Bronze Award in your Junior Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting. 


About the Girl Scout Bronze Award

GS Bronze Award Final Report
Please note: the Bronze Award asks the team to track income and expenses related to the project, as well as the hours each team member invests.  To be most successful, we recommend you print the Expense Sheet and Time Log from the Final Report above and use them to track these things as you go.




Girl Scout Silver Award

Girl Scout Cadettes, grades 6-8

Girls work individually or in a small team to brainstorm a fresh solution to an issue in their community.  They each invest at least 50 hours in carrying out their project, reaching out to build connections in their greater community, beyond their families and Girl Scout sisters.  If working as part of a team, the girls address a cause together, but each girl designs her own, separate part of the project where she shines as a leader.  Each girl completes her own Final Report to reflect on what she learned.  Find the requirements to earn the Silver Award in your Cadette Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting.
