Did you know? Every year, GSUSA selects 10 Gold Awardees as National Young Women of Distinction, representing the best-of-the-best Gold Award projects—Girl Scouts NorCal has had someone from our Council selected for this honor every year since 2013!
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Once achieved, it shows colleges, employers, and your community that you’re out there changing the world. Join a century of women who have done big things.
You can pursue your Girl Scout Gold Award if:
- You're in high school (ninth through twelfth grade, or equivalent)
- You're registered as a Girl Scout Senior or Girl Scout Ambassador
- You have completed two Senior or Ambassador Journeys OR earned the Girl Scout Silver Award and completed a Journey
