Girl Scout Silver Award

Important note for Mac users: Do not use “PDFContext by Mac” to fill in any of the forms on this page. Instead, download and install “Adobe Reader for MAC” and use that to fill in the forms you need.

Girls working on their Silver Award will submit paperwork to their troop or group volunteer for approval. Girls also need to submit to council the Silver Award Proposal Form prior to beginning the award project and the Silver Award Final Summary Form after completing the award project. When filling in paperwork, be sure to use all five digits of your troop number. The Leader's e-mail address is required as well. Leaders will be notified about how to purchase the pins. The troop is responsible for purchasing a Silver Award pin for each girl that earns the Silver Award.

Here are the forms you will need

Final summary forms must be submitted by April 1, 2015 to be included in our award celebration in spring 2015. If your final summary form is submitted after this date, you will be included in our award celebration in spring 2016.

Money Earning Policy

Sometimes award projects require funds for materials and other aspects of the project beyond what is available in the troop treasury. There are specific restrictions and guidelines for raising funds that girls and troops must follow. Please review and carefully follow the money earning policies listed below. Keep in mind that the Request for Money Earning Activity form must be submitted in time to be approved at least three weeks before the activity takes place.
