Girl Scouts earning their Silver Award

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.

*Remember: Both the Silver and Gold Award have required training before submitting a proposal. The videos are available here 24/7 for your convenience. Make sure to submit the quiz found below the videos so we can see you have done the training. We will contact you regarding submitting your proposal.
