Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia (GSHG) honored 17 girls for earning the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award at formal ceremonies across their footprint on Sunday, May 7. Younger Girl Scouts who earned the Silver or Bronze Award and volunteers who earned council level awards were also honored at the ceremonies.
The Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout can earn. It recognizes the work of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts, 9th – 12th graders, who have made outstanding accomplishments in the areas of leadership, community service, and personal development. Each girl working toward the Girl Scout Gold Award spends a minimum of 80 hours planning and implementing a leadership project that puts the Girl Scout Promise and Law into action and makes a positive and lasting impact on her community. They all exemplify true G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk taker and Leader)™ experiences.
