Girl Scout Highest Awards
In 1980, Girl Scouts introduced the Girl Scout Gold Award® as its highest honor, along with the Girl Scout Silver Award® . The Girl Scout Bronze Award® was introduced in 2001. To receive these awards, girls must meet national requirements that help them prepare for, and complete, a special project benefiting their community. Today, these three awards are a highlight of the Girl Scout experience.
Completing Your Award
Earning the previous award (i.e. Girl Scout Bronze Award before Girl Scout Silver Award; Girl Scout Silver Award before Girl Scout Gold Award) is not a pre-requisite of earning an award. Girls who have completed previous awards may find the skills they developed along the way helpful in earning their next award.
You cannot work on two awards at the same time. If you plan to complete an award, you cannot start on the pre-requisites for the next award until the previous award is finished.
