The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors (grades 9 and 10) and Ambassadors (grades 11 and 12) can earn. When you decide to earn the Girl Scout Gold Award, you are on your honor to uphold the Standards of Excellence. These standards set a high benchmark for everything you do and invite you to think deeply, explore opportunities and challenge yourself. Following the Standards of Excellence challenges you to develop yourself as a leader, achieve the Girl Scout Leadership Outcomes and make a mark on your community that creates a lasting impact on the lives of others.
Requirements for the Girl Scout Gold Award:
Review and use the Girl Scout Gold Award Workbook as a reference.
Complete and earn the awards from two grade level Journeys. If you earned the GS Silver Award,
