Girl Scouts Go for Gold and Change the World

The Gold Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. It’s an accomplishment earned by girls who are top achievers who demonstrate their ability to take on and successfully complete a project to make the world a better place. From introducing young girls to computer programming and educating teens about the dangers of distracted driving to showing children the importance of fitness and raising awareness about chronic illnesses, local Girl Scouts are making a big impact through their Gold Award projects.

Here are a few more examples of how local Girl Scouts earned the Gold Award:
  • Linda, a Virginia Beach Girl Scout, started a program brings together volunteers who recycles flower arrangements from special events into new arrangements to give to cancer patients at a local hospital. 
  • Maya, a Chesapeake Girl Scout, refurbished rooms at a women’s shelter and helped raise awareness about homelessness in the community.
  • Carla, a Kitty Hawk Girl Scout, built garden beds to teach local elementary school students about native plants. 

The Girl Scout Gold Award is something special, and so are the girls who earn it. Learn more about the highest achievements in Girl Scouting here.
