Girl Scouts is Celebrating the Centennial of its Highest Award

Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois, along with Girl Scouts everywhere, is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the movement's highest award, which has been named the Girl Scout Gold Award since 1980. 

While the name of the award has changed over the years, the hard work, heart and hope for a better future that inspires girls to earn this prestigious award has remained the same for 100 years!

In honor of this momentous occasion, GSSI is highlighting several of our alumnae who have received the highest award in Girl Scouting, as well as volunteers who have mentored young women while they completed leadership and community service projects required to earn the award.  Do you or someone you know have an inspiring story about earning the Girl Scout Gold Award or one of its predecessors?  Please contact Communications & Marketing Manager Tricia Higgins at 800.345.6858, 2143 or e-mail thiggins@gsofsi.org.
