Girl Scout Gold Award®
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout 14-18 may earn. For many, the leadership skills, organizational skills, and sense of community and commitment that come from "going for the Gold" set the foundation for a lifetime of active citizenship. Colleges, employers, and the military look favorably upon applicants with this credential. Someone once described the Girl Scout Gold Award as being "what you really want to be remembered for" in Girl Scouting. Last year’s Gold Award Ceremony was held Sunday, June 3, 2012, at Creekside Banquet Facility in Cheektowaga.
3,000 from all over the country attended this incredible event!
