Girl Scouts earning their Bronze Award

Bronze Award Girl Scouts

When Girl Scout Juniors team up to make a difference in their community, they learn important leadership skills, discover new passions, and watch how seemingly small actions make a big difference. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Bronze Award—the highest honor a Junior can achieve.

Recognizing the impact of COVID-19, our Awards team is here to support you. If you need to discuss changes to project plans or require additional time to complete the project, contact to discuss next steps.
