Please Note: The deadline for girls to complete their Silver Award follows the Girl Scout membership year and is September 30th of the year a girl begins 9th grade (after that, she is no longer officially a Girl Scout Cadette.) This is approved at the troop level by the troop leader.

Also, each year, Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia hosts awards ceremonies in early May where we honor girls who have earned the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards during the previous year.  In order to be recognized at that ceremony, a girl must submit her Final Report paperwork to the council by March 15th. If a girl finishes after the March 15th deadline, she will be recognized at the following year’s ceremony.
