The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn.
This award is the most prestigious award in the world for girls—and
the most difficult to earn—and it's only available to Girl Scouts.
Once achieved, it shows colleges, employers, and your community that
you've accepted the challenge to change the world—or at least your
corner of it.
Join a century of women who have done big things. Learn about scholarships, the history of the Gold Award,
and the benefits of going Gold.

Changes made to the Girl Scout Gold Award
National has updated the Gold Award to include projects that may
benefit the Girl Scout community. To ensure that this does not dilute
the prestige, leadership efforts, or impact of each girl’s project,
the Gold Award project must still meet the seven requirements that are
key to making it a sustainable project and contain two of the three
components (build, advocacy, education). All projects must have active leadership.
A build project would be a more difficult choice, as the project
will still need to have a second component and active
leadership. Build projects must have a community partner outside of
the benefiting organization who will agree in writing to sustain what
the girl has created in the years to come - neither GSCCC nor a GS
troop can be the sustaining partner.
The second change is in money earning for a Gold Award Project. A
girl must seek approval from the philanthropy department director
prior to setting up money earning activity or asking for any in-kind donation.
