Past Gold Award Projects:
The Golden Eaglet insignia, the highest award in Girl Scouting from 1916-1939, marked the beginning of a long tradition of using prestigious awards to recognize girls who make a difference in their communities and in their own lives.

Here is a picture of Juliette Gordon Low pinning a young woman who earned her Golden Eaglet.
