The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors 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 are:
• Submit Letter of Intent.
• Complete and earn the awards from two grade level Journeys. Register and attend a mandatory education workshop when you have started working on grade level Journey. If you earned the GS Silver Award, earn the awards from one grade-level Journey.

• Submit a proposal to the review committee by the first of any month.
• Meet with Girl Scout Gold Award Review Committee for project approval.
• Once your Take Action project is completed, submit the Final Report from GSCB’s Gold Award Workbook.
• Project completion and Final Reports must be in the council office by September 30, 2013 to be included in the On My Honor Celebration.
