Gold Award Girl Scouts

Issues of the world, meet your match. 


Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take “make the world a better place” to the next level.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—proof that not only can she make a difference, but that she already has.

Seniors and Ambassadors who earn the Gold Award tackle issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond. Think of the Gold Award as a key that can open doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities.

Recognizing the impact of COVID-19, Girl Scouts is offering a three-month extension from September 30 to December 31, 2020, to provide flexibility for Girl Scouts earning Highest Awards. Our Awards team is here to support you. If you need to discuss changes to project plans or have questions, contact awards@gshnj.org.
