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 email@example.com to discuss next steps.
You can pursue your Girl Scout Bronze Award if:
You're in fourth or fifth grade (or equivalent)
You're a registered Girl Scout Junior

Leaders are required to view our Bronze Award Training (available on gsLearn) before the girls begin their projects. Leaders should also review the Bronze Award Money Earning Policies for guidance on how projects can be funded.
While formal pre-approval of project ideas is not required, Girl Scouts are welcome to reach out with their ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to provide feedback and guidance.
Submission of Bronze Award Projects
The deadline for Bronze Award submissions is Sept 30th of the calendar year that the Girl Scout graduates 5th grade. If a Girl Scout will complete 5th grade in 2021, her Bronze Award project must be submitted to council by Sept 30, 2021.
