Girl Scouts' Highest Awards

Highest Awards

Every Girl Scout goes above and beyond to make a difference in her community and the greater world. The Highest Awards are national recognitions of your efforts to make the world a better place.

They are:

  • Bronze Award: Juniors team up with others to make a difference in their towns.
  • Silver Award: Cadettes earn this award by researching an issue, making a plan to address it, and then taking action to improve their communities.
  • Gold Award: Seniors and Ambassadors earn this award—the highest award in Girl Scouting—by developing and carrying out lasting solutions to issues in their neighborhoods and beyond. Gold Award Girl Scouts truly are the world changers, rock stars, role models, and real-life heroes we all look up to. Plus, they’re amazing candidates for colleges, scholarships, competitive internship programs, and exciting careers.
  • Rose Award: Seniors and Ambassadors can additionally earn their Rose Award, an award special to our council, in which they explore a range of topics including service, out-of-doors, independent living skills, creative arts, well-being, international friendships, promise and law, career exploration, and adult roles in Girl Scouting.
