Girl Scout Silver Award
The Highest Honor a Girl Scout Cadette Can Achieve!
Welcome to the Girl Scout Silver Award, your leadership adventure where you will earn the highest honor a Girl Scout Cadette can achieve. You may decide to work as a small team or solo to better your community and the lives of others by completing a Girl Scout Silver Take Action Project. The Silver Award is designed to give you a chance to show that you are a leader who is organized, determined, and dedicated to improving your community.
The Girl Scout Silver Award Take Action Project takes look at the root of the problem and try to find long-term solutions that will have an impact even after your initial work. Take the Take Action Quiz to find out how much you really know about Take Action projects, and start thinking of ways you can take the lead as a community advocate.
This award is designed to be accomplished during 6th, 7th, and 8th grades and must be completed by the September 30th directly after you have graduated from 8th grade.
