Six Inventive Gold Award Celebrations

Seniors and Ambassadors who earn the Gold Award tackle issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond.

2020 has thrown a lot of challenges so far, but Girl Scouts always have a backup plan. With in-person celebrations on hold, honoring Gold Award Girl Scouts in style has been challenging—but not impossible! Check out these creative celebrations:

Honk if you changed the world! Girl Scouts of Nassau County’s drive through Gold Award ceremony honored 56 out of their 62 Gold Award Girl Scouts. Chief Executive Officer Randell Bynum pinned each and every girl as she stuck her head out the window.

Road trip! Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio traveled over 315 miles in about three days to honor their 12 Gold Award Girl Scouts!

Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida celebrated Gold Award Girl Scouts in style! Parents and caregivers presented their girls with their Gold Award pins during this socially distance drive through ceremony. Each girl also received a yard sign so all of their neighbors know of the amazing accomplishment!

Girl Scouts of Maine created an inspiring video honoring each and every one of their Gold Award Girl Scouts with a surprise message from Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo!

If you can’t bring the Gold Award Girl Scouts to the gala, you bring the gala to them! Girl Scouts of Western Washington delivered a “Gala in a Box” to each and every Girl Scout who made a major impact on the community through her Gold Award. 

Grab your popcorn! Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts’s Gold Award and Silver Award ceremony felt like a drive-in movie. It was BYOC (bring your own chair!) to the Northfield Drive-In for some old-fashioned celebrating. 

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.
