Girl Scouts earning their Silver Award

Girl Scout Silver Award

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.

Silver and Gold Award Committee Meetings

To have your project reviewed at the next committee meeting please submit your reports by the 30th of the previous month. For example, to be reviewed at the October meeting, reports need to be submitted by September 30th. This gives our Silver and Gold Committee enough time to read and review each project. All committee decisions will be emailed within two business days after the committee meeting.

The Girl Scout award year runs from April 1st to March 31st of each year. All girls who earn their Silver or Gold Award after March 31st will be honored at the ceremony in 2023.
