Silver Award


The Girl Scout Silver Award

Have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better? Going for the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn—gives you the chance to do big things and make your community better in the process.

Girls start by choosing an issue that they care about, and following these 3 steps:

1. Complete Prerequisites
2. Create a Take Action Project

Girls implement a 50 hour (minimum) Take Action Project that will have a great impact on their community and complete the Silver Award Final Report.  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.

It is paramount, and our committee is requesting, that all Final Reports submissions are presented in a binder, type or neatly legible penmanship (please check proper grammar and spelling), all questions answered in a separate Word document, must have leader or advisor signatures, a tallied time log, and finally that it contains supporting documentation; pictures, links to websites, blogs and/or screen shots of any social media and copies of flyers/surveys, notes and anything that tell us their story—their accomplishments.

3. Mail the Silver Award Take Action Final Project Report

Mail projects to:

Girl Scouts of Greater New York
Attn: Program Dept.
40 Wall Street, Suite 708
New York, NY 10005

Projects are reviewed by our volunteer committee, after which girls receive an approval or addendum letter.
