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.
Girl Scout Cadettes will develop leadership skills by researching,
planning, and implementing a 50-hour Take Action project that address
an issue of their choice. Through their commitment to their
communities, girls gain confidence and skills that will catapult them
to Gold Award success.

project that will have a lasting impact on their community. Cadettes
should keep an accurate and detailed time log recording hours for
their project. In addition, girls should include pictures, flyers,
videos, presentations, website links, and any other relevant
information to create a portfolio. Once the project is complete, Girl
Scouts may submit their projects through the online Silver Award
