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.
Final Report Deadline Extended to December 31, 2020 for All Highest Awards
Recognizing that many schools, youth activities and community gatherings have been suspended, and that we are navigating a period of rapid change, Girl Scouts is offering a three-month extension from September 30 to December 31, 2020, to provide flexibility for Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassadors earning Girl Scouting’s Highest Awards.
This is particularly relevant for 5th grade Juniors, 8th grade Cadettes and 12th grade Ambassadors who will bridge to the next program age level officially on September 30 and typically would no longer be eligible to earn the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award respectively.
This guideline may be useful:
8th grade Cadettes should submit a Silver Award proposal no later than September 1, 2020 (will allow for a mid-September approval).*
*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.
