Earn Your Girl Scout Gold Award During Its 100 Year Celebration!

In 2016, Girl Scouts everywhere will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Scout Gold Award! How awesome would it be to be awarded your Gold Award on its centennial?!
Completing the Girl Scout Gold Award can take up to two years, so now is the time to start the process. To get started, first work on Senior or Ambassador Journeys.   Girls who did not earn their Girl Scout Silver Award need to complete two Journeys at these levels.  Girl Scout Silver Awardees need to complete just one.  The next step is to attend a Girl Scout Gold Award Training. There are trainings held throughout the council, see the schedule of remaining dates below or visit our website, to check for updates.
For more information, contact Program Manager Julie Schloss at 800.345.6858, ext. 1119 or e-mail
