GSWISE Bronze Award Resources

Girl Scout Juniors must be completed with their projects and submit a Final Report Form to GSWISE prior to becoming Girl Scout Cadettes. This deadline is September 30 after girls complete fifth grade.

Bronze Award projects are approved at the troop level. Adults working with girls (troop leaders, project advisors, group volunteers, etc.) and the girls themselves help to ensure the project meets all of the required guidelines found in the Bronze Award Girl Guidelines. Once final reports are submitted, girls should consider their Bronze Award complete. Girls and their listed troop leader will receive a confirmation email letting them know that their final report was received. 


Girl Scout Awards Celebration

The Girl Scout Award Celebration is an opportunity for girls who have earned the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards to be recognized for their accomplishments. We encourage families, troop leaders, and project advisors to attend. Girls wishing to be recognized at the upcoming spring recognition event must submit all final reports by the annual deadline of February 1.

Invitations will be mailed to girls/troops eligible for recognition in March.
