Earning the Gold Award is an extraordinary accomplishment.
We are extremely proud to celebrate the 51 Girl Scouts who have earned the highest award in Girl Scouting, the Girl Scout Gold Award, their efforts and their accomplishments. Receiving this prestigious award demonstrates that they are G.I.R.Ls (go-getters, innovators, risk-takers and leaders).
Nationally, only 6% of eligible Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors achieve this honor. The Gold Award reflects the skills a girl has learned through her years as a Girl Scout. Her Gold Award project encompasses organizational, leadership and networking skills that culminate in a project that has a positive, lasting impact on the community.
This is the impact Juliette Gordon Low believed girls and young women could have on society when she formed the Girl Scout Movement 106 years ago. We are proud of the way our 2018 Award recipients have carried out her dream and legacy.
So, what’s next?
With the organizational, time management, planning, collaboration, and budgeting skills each of these Gold Award Girl Scouts employed and aptly used—the simple answer is: Whatever they put their minds to achieve. Instead of asking, “Can I?” they now can confidently say, “I will!”
To our newest Gold Award Girl Scouts:
Congratulations! We hope each of you will use your skills to find more ways to make the world a better place. Whether it’s leading an important cause on your school’s campus, standing up for those who can’t, becoming active in student government, leading a voter registration drive, a food drive, or serving others as an EMT, nurse, physician, psychologist, professor or lawyer.
Continue achieving and setting new goals. Let this award be the accomplishment that inspires you to more greatness. We need you and we are counting on you!
