While some people still think of Girl Scouts as just cookies, singing, badges, campfires, and friendship bracelets, Girl Scouts are so much more. Girl Scouts are groundbreakers, big thinkers, and role models.
Our goal is to give every girl the opportunity to unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader)™. Through Girl Scouting, girls develop leadership skills and sense of self that will shape her future for decades to come.
The Girl Scout Gold Award embodies the Girl Scout Mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. The Gold Award is Girl Scouting's highest honor. This prestigious award is earned by a select group of Girl Scouts who demonstrate a commitment to improving their communities and advocate for lasting change. Girls who earn the highest award in Girl Scouting identify a problem in their community, research ways to improve the situation, and then take action to improve their corner of the world.
