The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouting—created in 1916, this leadership award recognizes older girls who make a difference in their communities. Since 1916, approximately one million Girl Scouts have reached their Gold Award or the equivalent. Present award requirements call for an 80 hour take action project created and completed by each girl as a means to make a sustainable impact within their local community. In May 2017, GSSNE hosted the Girl Scouts Shine Ceremony where we honored twelve Gold Awardees at Warwick Country Club.
Each week we plan to feature a different Gold Award Girl Scout as a reminder of the incredible efforts and accomplishments of these G.I.R.L.s who are built of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place!
