Girl Scout Girl Awards
Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards
Through the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards, girls Discover, Connect and Take Action—which translates into knowing yourself, reaching out to others and making a real difference in your community. Through September 30, 2011, girls may complete the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards using existing resources. This includes the current forms, approval process and age requirements for each award level. As always, there is flexibility during times of transition, so rest assured that girls will not have to “do over” or lose any of their work as they move along the steps leading to the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award. As questions arise, be sure to contact Program Manager at the Bemidji Service Center.
Effective October 1, 2011, the new Girl Awards guidelines become effective. For now, you can choose which guidelines you would like to work from, but if the majority of the work toward the award will be done during the 2011-2012 membership year, you should use the new guidelines.
