Let’s Get Started!
Girls must be in 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade, and be a registered Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador. The Girl Scout Gold Award must be earned as an individual. The project may not benefit Girl Scouts, but must benefit the community.
Gold Award Deadlines and Due Dates
Girls in 9th-11th grades may submit Proposals or Final Reports quarterly on or before February 1, May 1, August 1, and November 1. Paperwork that arrives after these dates will be held to the next quarter. Interviews with the Gold Award Committee will be scheduled as soon as the committee members’ schedules allow.
Girls in 12th grade have a deadline of February 1 to submit Proposals and May 1 to submit Final Reports. Interviews for graduating seniors will be scheduled as needed to meet their time constraints. Projects must be completed and approved by September 30 after graduation to qualify for a Gold Award.
Suggested Timeline for Earning the Gold Award:
