Please note these important deadlines:
The deadline for the Silver and Bronze Award extension is December 31, 2020.
All paperwork must be turned in by this date to qualify for approval.
Who is this extension for?
Registered Girl Scouts of Central California South who were not able to finish their Silver or Bronze awards in the past Girl Scout year due to Covid-19 limitations. This extension is for any of these Girls who moved to a new Girl Scout level in the new year (Junior to Cadette, Cadette to Senior) in the new Girl Scout year and were not able to finish their project by September 30, 2020.
How do I turn in my paperwork?
You can email your paperwork to Customer Care (attention: Candice Blair, Girl Experience Manager). You can also mail your paperwork to our Headquarter office, address below. We will honor the sent by or postmarked date. Keep in mind, there will be no staff in council offices after December 22, 2020 until January 4, 2021.

How do I know my paperwork was received/approved?
By emailing your paperwork to CustomerCare, a record is made of this transmission. If you are concerned about mailing it and the receipt, you can choose a certified mail option. All paperwork will be reviewed on the first week of January 2021. Approvals or any changes will be sent out the same week.
Since we are on Stay At Home Orders again, will there be another extension?
At this time, GSUSA has not issued another extension for Gold, Silver or Bronze Awards. If this changes our GSCCS website and Highest Award page will be updated, and another media announcement will be made.
