Gold Award

Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take “make the world a better place” to the next level. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—proof that not only can she make a difference, but that she already has. In August of 2020, Girl Scouts of Central California South, celebrated 14 Seniors and Ambassadors who earn their Gold Awards by tackling issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond. The Gold Awards is a key that can open doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities. Watch the above video for the 2020 Gold Award Ceremony.

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.
