Silver Award Girl Scouts

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout in grades 6-8 may earn.

When Girl Scout Cadettes focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference, they gain the confidence and skills that will catapult them to lifelong success. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest honor a Cadette can achieve.  Download the Silver Award guidelines to find out how.

Congrats Silver Award Class of 2019!

On October 13, 2019, the Silver Award Class of 2019 was honored at an open-house style event where they were able to showcase their projects and mingle with other Silver Award Girl Scouts. This opportunity was sponsored by the Gina Rose Montalto Foundation and supported by the Montalto family. Attendees were able to meet the GSSEF CEO Lisa Johnson and Board Chair Tami Donnally and they heard a special presentation from our 2019 National Gold Award Girl Scout, Kai Zaragoza!  View photos from the event here.
