Silver Award Girl Scouts

When Girl Scout Cadettes focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference, they gain the confidence and skills that will catapult them to lifelong success. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest honor a Cadette can achieve.  Download the Silver Award guidelines to find out how.


Deadline Extended

Great news! Bridging Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes and Ambassadors will have an extension through December 31, 2020, to earn Girl Scouts’ Highest Awards. This extension is for 5th grade Juniors who will be Girl Scout Cadettes and have renewed their membership, 8th grade Cadettes who will be Seniors and have renewed their membership, and 12th grade Ambassadors who will bridge to adults and renewed their membership. This extension allows girls to continue working on their award project through our new December deadline, which means their projects must have been started prior to September 30, 2020. Girls must be registered for membership year 2021 to earn the award.
