Silver Award Girl Scouts
Have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better? Going for the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn—gives you the chance to do big things and make your community better in the process.
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 Silver Award if:
You're in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade (or equivalent)
You're a registered Girl Scout Cadette

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.
