Girl Scouts' Highest Awards

Highest Awards

GSUSA and GSMISTS recognizes that the pandemic has continued to create challenges for girls seeking to positively impact their communities through our highest awards. GSMISTS is open to approving case-by-case deadline extensions beyond December 31, 2020 for girls who are actively pursuing their Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award. This is particularly relevant for girls who bridged to the next program level officially on Sept. 30, 2020.  In order for an extension to be considered, girls need to have identified their project, put a plan in place, and been ready to act no later than September 30, 2020. For more information or to request an extension contact

Every Girl Scout goes above and beyond to make a difference in her community and the greater world. The skills and experiences she gains along the way set her up for special recognition through the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.

All three awards give girls the chance to do big things while supporting issues they care about.

As you earn one of Girl Scouts’ highest awards, you’ll change your corner of the world—and beyond. The possibilities are endless.
