Silver Award

Since 1916, Girl Scout’s highest award has stood for excellence and leadership for girls everywhere.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest and most prestigious award that Girl Scout Cadette (grades 6-8) can earn.

Girls, have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better? Earning your Girl Scout Silver Award - the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn - gives you the chance to show that you are a leader who is organized, determined, and dedicated to improving your community.

Earning the award puts you among an exceptional group of girls who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world.
