Ready to help your community and earn one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting? Cadettes can team up with a small group of fellow Girl Scouts or work on their own. To earn the Silver Award, you will research an issue you care about, make a plan to address it, and then take action to improve your community.

Silver Award Projects are approved by the adult (troop leader, project advisor, or parent/guardian) working alongside the Girl Scout after making sure the project plan meets all required guidelines. After the adult gives project approval, Girl Scouts should submit their Project Proposal to GSWISE prior to beginning the project, and submit their Final Report to GSWISE upon project completion (but no later than Sept. 30 after 8th grade graduation).
I developed and delivered a STEM course for middle schoolers about pollution.
We improved outdoor areas so girls feel comfortable in the water at summer camp.
