Silver Award Girl Scouts
When Girl Scout Cadettes focus on an issue they care about, learn the facts, and take action to make a difference, they gain the confidence and skills that will catapult them to lifelong success. It all adds up to the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest honor a Cadette can achieve. Download the Silver Award guidelines to find out how.
Parents / Leaders: If your girls have earned their Silver Award, please submit a Recognition Request Form in order to report that they have earned the award. This form also authorizes you to purchase their Pin from our shops.
