Gold Award Girl Scouts

Issues of the world, meet your match. 


Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take “make the world a better place” to the next level.

Seniors and Ambassadors who earn the Gold Award tackle issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond. Think of the Gold Award as a key that can open doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities.
