Girl Scout Gold Award Go Gold

Gold Award Girl Scouts


Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take “make the world a better place” to the next level.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—proof that not only can she make a difference, but that she already has.

Seniors and Ambassadors who earn the Gold Award tackle issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond. Think of the Gold Award as a key that can open doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities.

Get inspired! Check out GSGLA's 2021 Gold Award Yearbook below.

Congratulations to Gold Award Girl Scout Giovanna! She has been awarded a scholarship thanks to sponsorship from Arconic Foundation and Kappa Delta Foundation. Giovanna’s Gold Award project and book “A Kid's Guide to Radiation Therapy” addresses the lack of age-appropriate, educational resources on the topic of radiation

therapy for pediatric patients and their families in both English and Spanish. While writing her book, Giovanna was able to obtain medically accurate information from radiation therapists and Certified Child Life Specialists at Miller Children’s Hospital Long Beach. Giovanna shared while working on her Gold Award that she “learned that when I want something, I do not stop working towards it until I get it. My passion behind my project has made me more confident in myself and seeing what I have accomplished has furthered my tenacity. Ultimately, I learned that I am capable of doing amazing things when I have a passion for it and an intention to help other people.”
