Gold Award Girl Scouts change the world

Submitted by the Girl Scouts of America

Gold Award Girl Scouts are change-makers. They are changing the world, changing their lives, and earning the most prestigious award in Girl Scouting. To earn the Gold Award, a Girl Scout identifies an issue in their community, drafts a plan to address a root cause, and leads a team of volunteers to implement it. When the project is complete, the Gold Award Girl Scout and their team have made a sustainable impact on the world that continues to last beyond their involvement.

It’s a huge accomplishment that also impacts the Gold Award Girl Scout as a person. How they see the world – and how the world sees them – is forever changed. It’s also a credential that will be with them for the rest of their life.

Our Gold Award ceremony is Saturday, June 1, at the Hyatt Regency Rochester.

This year, Gold Award Recipients from the Erie and Niagara regions are:
