These awards can be earned each year of Cadettes, Seniors and
Ambassadors. Hours used to earn one award cannot be used for another
award. Please submit the Leadership Project Time Log for Girls form when
purchasing the awards to the Boise Council office.
The Torch Award: This award recognizes Cadettes, Seniors and
Ambassadors who act as leaders in their communities. Requirements are
in the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.
Community Service bar: When girls earn the Community Service
bar, they are making a difference in their community – and practicing
the values of the Girl Scout Law. It’s also a great way to get
involved with a particular cause they care about. Girls complete at
least 20 hours of service to earn the bar.
Service to Girl Scouting bar: Girls who choose to volunteer at
least 20 hours to the Girl Scout organization, can receive the Service
to Girl Scouting bar. For example, girls might volunteer time at a
special event for younger girls, volunteer at the council office or at
service unit leader meetings babysitting, or help with special projects.
National Gold Award Girl Scouts: Every year, ten exceptionally
inspiring Girl Scout Gold
Award recipients are chosen as National Gold Award Girl Scouts (NGAGS).
This honor is given to Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors whose Gold
Award projects demonstrated extraordinary leadership, had a measurable
and sustainable impact, and addressed a local challenge related to a
national and/or global issue. These young women are taking matters
into their own hands, generating much-needed change!
The NGAGS program perfectly reflects our mission of building girls
of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better
place. The program provides these young stars with the opportunity to
be an inspiration to girls around the world and throughout the Girl
Scout Movement—and serve as incredible examples of what it means to be
(Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™.
