National Gold Award Girl Scouts - 2018

2019 National Gold Award Girl Scouts

Every year, ten exceptionally inspiring Gold Award Girl Scouts are chosen as National Gold Award Girl Scouts.

This honor is given to Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors whose Gold Award projects demonstrated extraordinary leadership, had a measurable and sustainable impact, and addressed a local challenge related to a national and/or global issue. These young women are taking matters into their own hands, generating much-needed change!

How are the National Gold Award Girl Scouts chosen?

Councils are asked to select their top three Gold Award Girl Scouts using GoGold Online. Girl Scouts who would like their councils to consider nominating them as National Gold Award Girl Scouts are required to use GoGold Online. GSUSA then ensures a rigorous review process, during which each application is thoroughly evaluated by GSUSA staff and an external panel of trusted partners. Once the list is narrowed, GSUSA's internal National Gold Award Girl Scout team selects the top ten.

When are the National Gold Award Girl Scouts selected?

Councils are asked to nominate candidates annually from April 1 through April 30. Following a two-month review process, ten new National Gold Award Girl Scouts are announced in July.
