In response to COVID-19, Girl Scouts of the USA has implemented a three-month deadline extension (to December 31, 2020) for all Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors currently pursuing their Highest Awards. Learn more about Highest Awards during COVID-19.
Go on a Girl Scout Journey. Through a Girl Scout Journey, you'll earn leadership awards that will help you in earning the Bronze Award.
Build your team. Gather a team of Girl Scout Juniors and volunteers or adults who will support you along the way. Individual girls can lead a Bronze Award project, but should work with a team. GSEMA strongly encourages teams of ten or fewer.
Explore your community. Begin by brainstorming topics you are most passionate about and identifying issues related to the topic. You may also identify communities you are a part of or have worked with in the past, and assess needs or gaps within them.
Choose your project. Confirm the community need, and how you will take action to address it.
Make a plan. As a group and with help from volunteers, create a project plan. Then, share your plan with GSEMA.
Put your plan into motion. Work together to implement your plan, making sure everyone has a role and responsibility.
Spread the word. Once you've completed tour project, it’s time to think about what you did, why it mattered, and what you learned.
