Since 1916, Girl Scouts have been making meaningful, sustainable change in their communities and around the world. The Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn, acknowledges each Gold Awardees' dedication to empowering and bettering herself and making the world a better place for others. These young women are courageous leaders and visionary change makers. They are our future, and it looks bright!

Help us recognize our young leaders and their Gold Award Project results!

It's not only Girl Scouts who understand the value of the Gold Award. Some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to award recipients, and girls who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank in recognition of their achievements.

Earning the Gold Award is just one of the amazing things girls can do as part of Girl Scouts.
