Gold AwardThe Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout may earn. It can set the foundation for active citizenship throughout a woman's life. It is the culmination of all the work a girl puts into "Going For the Gold."It is something that a girl can be passionate about-in thought, deed and action. The project is something that fulfills a need within a girl's community (whether local or global), creates change and hopefully is something that becomes ongoing.
