Gold Award Girl Scouts

Celebrating Our Gold Award Girl Scouts

Our annual event is a special time to recognize our Gold Award Girl Scouts, for girls to reflect on their projects, and for families to acknowledge the hard work and dedication it takes to earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest and most prestigious awards for Seniors and Ambassadors.

Introducing our newest GSNYPENN honor – the Change Maker Award! Change Makers are girls who’ve accomplished the incredible feat of earning all of Girl Scouting’s highest awards: Bronze, Silver & Gold!


We honored our inaugural group of Change Makers at our Gold Award Girl Scout Celebration on November 19, 2022.

Class of 2023: Earned During 2022-23 Member Year

Four Class of 2023 Girl Scouts were selected for Council Scholarships because their projects demonstrated the highest level of the award’s core standards.  A total of $10,000 was awarded in memory of special GSNYPENN Girl Scout sisters lost in 2019 in addition to several more scholarships than usual thanks to funds raised from the council’s annual Women of Distinction breakfast held in September.
