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.
GSUSA has reimagined and updated the guidelines, proposal, and final report for Girl Scouts who wish to earn The Silver Award. GSSEF will adopt the updated guidelines and documents as of 9/1/2023. Girl Scouts currently working on a council-approved Silver Award project will complete the process with the former set of materials and are not required to make changes based on the 2023 version. GSSEF will accept new Silver Award project proposals with the former set of materials through 12/31/2023. As of 1/1/2024, new Silver Award Project Proposals will be accepted based on the new 2023 guidelines and proposal forms. If you have any questions about the changes or this timeline for transition, please email: email@example.com.
