Silver Award


The highest award for Girl Scouts 11-14, focuses on leadership, career exploration, challenge for personal growth and community action. 

Girls start by choosing an issue that they care about.
And following these 3 steps:

Step 1 Girls complete 1 of the following pre-requisites

  • Breathe. It’s Your Planet Love It! A Leadership Journey
  • Amaze! It’s Your World Change It! A Leadership Journey
  • Media. It’s Your Story - Tell It! A Leadership Journey

Step 2 Girls create a Take Action Project
Girls implement a 50 hour (minimum) service project that will have a great impact on their community and complete the Silver Take Action Final Project Form. They must be sure to fill out the form in its entirety. Along with the form girls should include pictures, flyers and any other relevant information to create a portfolio. The project can be put together in a binder or folder. All answers should be typed.

Step 3 Girls mail their Take Action Final Project Report
Girls should mail their project to: Girl Scout Council of Greater New York 43 West 23rd Street, New York, NY 10010 Att. Program Dept

Each project will then be reviewed by our volunteer committee and girls will receive an approval or addendum letter.
