Are you a Girl Scout Cadette who’s ready to make the world a better place and earn the second highest honor available to Girl Scouts? Then you are ready to earn the Silver Award. Below is all the information you need on earning the Silver Award with Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta.

  • Is in the sixth, seventh, or eighth grade
  • Has completed a Cadette Journey

What are the important dates for the Silver Award?

Silver Award Process

  1. Decide if you want to work alone or with a troop
  2. Choose an issue
  3. Build your team
  4. Plan your Take Action project-make sure to keep sustainability in mind
  5. Implement your project
  6. Complete the Final Report form

When is my Silver Award complete?

Silver Awards are complete when the Girl Scout and her troop leader work together to submit the Silver Award Final Report.

The final report is filled out for each project. If a group of girls work together, only one final report is needed for the project.

The final report can be filled out by the troop leader or the Girl Scout(s) but must have the approval of the troop leader to be submitted. After this, the troop leader will receive an email confirming receipt. This is the only communication leaders will get from GSGATL to confirm that the Silver Award has been earned and this email can be used to verify earner status to buy patches and pins from the Badge and Sash Store.
