Girl Scout Cadettes working on a project for their Silver Award

Become a Silver Award Girl Scout

Change the world and earn one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting.

Hey, Cadettes, this one’s for you. When you team up with a small group of Girl Scout friends to find an issue you care about and then make a difference in your community, you can earn the Girl Scout Silver Award—one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting. You’ve got this, Girl Scout.

You can become a Silver Award Girl Scout if you

  • are in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade
