Gold Award Centennial


In 2016, we celebrated 100 years of changing the world. 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 the power behind each recipient’s dedication to not only empowering and bettering herself, but also to making the world a better place for others.

It's not too late to get in on the celebration! See photos from centennial events, share your story below, or support future generations of Gold Award Girl Scouts with a gift to the Emerald Circle Scholarship Fund.
