Many councils believe that the Gold Award has the prestige and deserves the same level of recognition as that of a BSA Eagle Scout. They believe that those who earn the Gold Award need to be consistently called by a single name that is instantly recognizable as one of the highest achievement. They are proposing that the name Gold Girl Scout be used, and that we no longer use "Gold Award recipient" to describe our Gold Girl Scouts, because they do not receive the award, they earn it.
