The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Cadette can earn. The Girl Scout Silver Award represents a girl's accomplishments in Girl Scouting and in her community as she grows and works to improve her life and the lives of others. The first four requirements of the Girl Scout Silver Award help girls build skills, explore careers, gain leadership skills, and make a commitment to self-improvement.
Silver Award Process
The Girl Scout Silver Award requirements are in transition. Click here for information about the Transition and for the Transition Timeline. Regardless of which set of guidelines (outgoing or Journey) they choose, girls must follow that set of guidelines until they complete the project.
Silver Award workshops are held throughout the council. They are not mandatory, but they are helpful.
Upon completing the prerequisites (or near completion), girls must:
- Formulate a project
- Get project approval from the Troop Leader
Once the proposal is approved, the candidate may begin her project. Upon completion of the Silver Award project, girls must submit their Silver Award Final Report to the council office. The last possible opportunity to submit a Silver Award Final Report is September 30 of the year a girl graduates from 8th grade.

Silver Award Project
The Silver Award project is the culmination of all the work a girl puts into achieving this award. It can be undertaken when the first four requirements are completed. It can be done as an individual or with a group. If done with a group, a girl must be responsible for a specific part of the project and evaluate her contribution to the project and the group.
Silver Award Ceremony
Our Silver Award honorees are celebrated by family, friends, volunteers, staff, and special guests at this annual regional event. To qualify for participation in their regional Silver Award Ceremony, girls must meet the March 1 deadline for submitting their final report. If troops/girls submit their final report after the deadline, they will be eligible to participate in the following year’s ceremony.
