The Girl Scout Gold Award, Girl Scouting’s highest honor, is earned through a project that meets an expressed need in the community. Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are challenged to excel in the areas of leadership and service as they utilize skills learned from the Journeys to complete their Gold Award project. Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award is no simple task. It requires completion of a series of steps: identify a community need; investigate it thoroughly; request help and build a team; create a plan; present the plan; gather feedback; take action; and educate and inspire others. In reaching out to others, these young women learn about the talents and strengths within themselves. A Gold Award recipient becomes a community leader whose accomplishments set her apart from the rest. The organizational skills, leadership skills, and sense of community and commitment that come rom “going or the gold” set the oundation or a lietime o active citizenship. The list of opportunities is endless. Our sincerest congratulations to these young women of whom we are exceedingly proud. These women are the leaders of tomorrow, and we confdently leave the future o Girl Scouting in their very capable hands.
