TAKE ACTION PROJECT

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors can earn. The Gold Award is awarded to an individual who successfully completes a project that is measurable and sustainable, impacts the community outside of Girl Scouts, and has a global piece. A Girl Scout must be in the 9th grade before beginning her Gold Award Project requirements and must complete them before September 30 of her graduation year.

The Gold Award TAKE ACTION project is the culmination of all the work a Senior or Ambassador Girl Scout puts into "going for the Gold."  It is something that a girl can be passionate about—in thought, deed, and action. The project is something that fulfills a need within a girl's community (whether local or global), creates change, and becomes ongoing. If it is an event, it should be something that people will want to continue for the next year; if it is a service, it should be something that creates change or action with long-term possibilities, empowering others besides just the girl; if it is something tangible, it should come with a plan for use and maintenance within the community. The project is more than a good service project—it encompasses organizational, leadership, and networking skills.

The Gold Award is an individual project which impacts the community outside of Girl Scouts. It should be measurable and sustainable and have a global piece.  A Girl Scout must be in 9th grade before beginning her Gold Award Project requirements and must complete her Gold Award Project before September 30th of her graduation year.  Before beginning a Gold Award TAKE ACTION Project, it must be approved by the Gold Award Advisory Panel who meets on a quarterly basis to review proposals and final reports and to provide feedback to the Girl Scouts.  Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts are asked to submit their Gold Award Proposals or Gold Award Final Reports by the quarterly deadline.  The Girl Scouts will be contacted by the Panel and scheduled for the Presentation date in their area.

After the Gold Award Final Report approval, the Senior or Ambassador Girl Scout has officially earned her Girl Scout Gold Award which may be presented at a Council-wide or local ceremony.  The Gold Award Pin is presented to the Girl Scout complimentary.
