Ready to help your community and earn one of the highest awards in Girl Scouting? Cadettes can team up with a small group of fellow Girl Scouts or work on their own. To earn the Silver Award, you will research an issue you care about, make a plan to address it, and then take action to improve your community.

Build your Girl Scout Silver Award team or decide to go solo.
Explore your community and think of how that issue affects your community.
Girl Scouts who complete their Silver Award project must submit their final report to USAGSO by September 30 following their 8th grade year. Please submit only one report for each project. Once your final report has been reviewed and we have confirmed that all award requirements were met, you will receive a congratulatory email and instructions to order your Silver Award pin and certificate.
When you support Girl Scouts earning their Silver Award, you’ll help them see their own power and be by their side as they make a lasting change in their community. Download this guide to get started today.
