New for MY24
• We now REQUIRE a project proposal. Please submit this document to firstname.lastname@example.org The project must be approved before the girls begin implementing. Girls who have already started Silver Award projects do not need to get approval, but should submit proposals to make sure that their projects are on target.
• After project completion, girls will collaborate on the Final Report. Some sections are completed as a team and others as individuals. Submit the final report to email@example.com
How Do We Get Started?
• Leaders and girls are required to view our Silver Award Training (available on gsLearn) before the Girl Scout(s) begin their project. Cadettes 13 and older can request assess to their own gsLearn account HERE. Cadettes younger than 13 can view the tutorial on their adult's account.
• Troops may request an a la carte Silver Award Workshop for five or more Girl Scouts if they have questions about the Silver Award.
