About the Girl Scout Gold Award

For 100 years, a select group of exceptional girls have been inspired to find greatness inside themselves and share their ideas and passions with their communities by earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the premier leadership award for girls in the country.

While the name of the award has changed over the years, the impact has remained consistent. These extraordinary young women have led with courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place.

About the Girl Scouts of Greater New York

Since 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York has served more than five million girls in New York City, preparing them to lead with courage, confidence and character, to make the world a better place. Today, we serve over 29,000 girls ages 5 to 17 in every zip code of New York City’s five boroughs. 70% of the girls we serve come from low-to-moderate income homes; their participation is heavily subsidized by the Council. Funds raised at the Gala help us meet the rising demand for our leadership programs, and prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
