This council award recognizes Gold Award Girl Scouts, Curved Bar alumnae or First Class alumnae over the age of 35 who have carried the values of the Girl Scout Gold Award throughout their lifetime, exhibiting exemplary leadership and community service. Girl Scouts helps create female leaders in our communities and our world. The values that we instill in our girls are life-long. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that Girl Scouts can bestow, and the young women who receive this award demonstrate exemplary service to their communities and leadership. However, those values do not end with high school.
