About Silver Awards

Have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better? Going for the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn—gives you the chance to do big things and make your community better in the process.

Download the Guide to Going Silver to find out how. Be sure and submit your Silver Award Request for Approval 30 days in advance of beginning your project, to obtain Council approval. Silver Awards are Council approved, final reports are due February 1 each year and recipients are recognized by Council.

EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2020, completion of Silver Award Training will be REQUIRED prior to a Silver Award Take Action Project Notice of Intent being accepted. This training is available after October 1st of your 6th grade year.
