Girl Scouts earning their Bronze Award

Bronze Award Girl Scouts

Welcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll meet new people and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference. 

GSUSA and GSMISTS recognizes 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 for girls who are actively pursuing their Bronze Award. This is particularly relevant for girls who bridged to Cadettes officially on Sept. 30, 2021, and typically would be no longer eligible to earn the Bronze Award. For more information or to request an extension contact

Bronze Award Final Reports are due to GSMISTS by Monday, March 28, 2022 in order for Girl Scouts to be recognized at the GSMISTS Girl Recognition Ceremony on Sunday, May 1, 2022
