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, 8th grade Cadettes, and 12th grade Ambassadors who will bridge to the next program level in September 2020. This extension allows girls to continue working on their award through our new December deadline.
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.
You can pursue your Girl Scout Silver Award if:
You're in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade (or equivalent)
You're a registered Girl Scout Cadette
You have completed a Cadette Journey

Once the Silver Award project is completed, the GSCCC Girl Scout leader or advisor will complete an online survey to record the completion of the award. GSCCC will send each girl who completes a Silver Award project a letter and certificate. The Silver Award pin may be purchased at any Council shop or purchased through the online shop.
To request recognition for the Girl Scout Silver Award, complete this survey.
Riley's Way Foundation Call for Kindness
Teens across the country can enter to win up to $3,000 to drive change that inspires kindness and build meaningful connections in their communities. Fifteen teen-led projects will receive this award, along with the opportunity to take part in the Riley’s Way Kind Leadership Series.
This opportunity is perfect for Girl Scouts pursuing the Silver and/or Gold Award and who seek funding. This may also be a good fit for Girl Scouts seeking ongoing financial support to help sustain or build upon their highest award project (of course, it’s ideal for projects to sustain independently of Girl Scouts).
