Bronze Award

The Bronze award is the highest award a Junior Girl Scout or in grades 4th – 5th can earn. It shows that girls have made a promise to help others and improve their community. Before beginning the Bronze Award, the girl must complete her Junior Journey, and spend a minimum of  20 hours  building her teaming in order to complete her project. As leaders you want to encourage your girls to take the lead in this project and begin to learn how to work as a team.

Gold Award

The Gold Award is the highest award a girl can achieve in her Girl Scout career; only 5.4 percent of girls in Girl Scouting earn this prestigious award. This highest Girl Scout Award is only open to girls in 9 – 12 grade. Unlike the Bronze and Silver Awards, which can be pursued as a team or small group of girls, Gold Award Take Action projects are a unique opportunity for individual girls to grow into their own personal leadership style. Working with support from her GSSEF Gold Award Advisor, girls work to complete a true “Take Action” project after identifying an issue in their community, building a team to tackle it and fulfilling her high-level plan. Community resources are used to create a long term solution that continues after the project is completed. Through the Gold Award project girls will further develop their leadership skills by planning, organizing, and leading other people. In the process of the projects, girls will develop patience, confidence, time management, communication, public speaking and other real-life skills that will carry over into their college life and future careers.

To be a part of the Class of 2014, all Gold Award Final Project Reports must be turned in by Tuesday, April 1, 2014 to one of the GSSEF service centers. Please note that Gold Award Projects that are submitted following this date will be evaluated for the Class of 2015. For questions, please contact Lammy Askar, director of program, at 954-513-3771 or aaskar@gssef.org.
