Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold 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, they are asked 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.
