Gold Award Forms and Requirements


The Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting, recognizes the leadership, effort and impact that girls in grades 9-12 have in their communities.

Through an individual, 80-hour, community based project, girls address the root cause of an issue they are passionate about, create a sustainable change and demonstrate leadership through educating and guiding others.
