Girl Scouts' Highest Awards

Highest Awards

Bronze. Silver. Gold. These represent the highest honors a Girl Scout can earn.

All three awards give you the chance to do big things while working on an issue you care about. Whether you want to plant a community garden at your school and inspire others to eat healthily for your Bronze, advocate for animal rights for your Silver, or build a career network that encourages girls to become scientists and engineers for your Gold, you’ll inspire others (and yourself). 

Ten Girl Scouts received their Gold Award in 2018 with projects that included literacy trails for children in Haiti, Kenya, and Milwaukee; a conference for girls at Milwaukee School of Engineering, exposing them to career opportunities in STEM fields; installing a wheelchair accessible garden bed at the Riveredge Nature Center, and more.

Get inspired as you watch these girls describe their projects in their own words!
