The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. Once achieved, it shows colleges, employers, and your community that you’re out there changing the world.
Watch our Gold Award Webinar! The Gold Award webinar is a resource for girls and families looking to start their Gold Award journey. It is not required that girls watch the webinar prior to submitting their Gold Award Project Proposal.
Submit Proposal: Proposals may only be submitted through the GoGold online portal. GSHPA must approve your project plan before you begin actively working on it. No final reports will be approved without a council-approved project plan.
After your proposal is reviewed, a staff member will reach out to you discuss your proposal by phone. Further details will be provided prior to the phone call.
Empowering today's girls to become tomorrow's leaders.
