Bronze Award Girl Scouts

GSUSA COVID-19 Highest Awards Guidelines on Project Extensions
GSUSA is offering a special deadline extension to December 31, 2020 and will continue to re-assess over the next few months:
- Girl Scouts is offering a three-month deadline extension from September 30 to December 31, 2020, for Girl Scouts who are graduating from 5th grade (Juniors who seek to earn the Bronze Award), 8th grade (Cadettes who seek to earn the Silver Award), and 12th grade (Ambassadors who seek to earn the Gold Award) this year. These Girl Scouts will bridge to the next program level officially on October 1, 2020 and, without this extension, they would be no longer be eligible to earn the Bronze, Silver, or Gold Award, respectively.
- Girl Scouts should have a project identified, a plan in place, and be ready to take action no later than September 30, 2020 Given that each council handles highest award project tracking, approvals, and recognitions differently, Girl Scouts should follow local council guidelines and procedures.
- GSHNC guideline for 12th grade Ambassador Gold Award projects: Project proposals must be approved by the Gold Award Committee before September 30, 2020 in order to use the deadline extension.
- Graduating 12th grade Ambassadors should plan to have an adult membership in order to use the extension.
