Are you Girl Scout Gold? Celebrate with us!

If you've earned a Girl Scout Highest Award, you're part of an elite group of women (we call them our Girl Scout Gold). Starting in 1916, the best and brightest undertook projects that improved their communities—and the world. The Golden Eaglet insignia, the highest award in Girl Scouting from 1916 to 1939, marked the beginning of a long tradition of recognizing the extraordinary efforts of extraordinary girls. From 1940 to 1963, the Curved Bar Award was the highest honor in Girl Scouting. From 1963 to 1980, the highest award was called First Class. And since 1980, the Gold Award has inspired girls to find the greatness inside themselves and share their ideas and passions with their communities.

Our Gold Shines Bright!

We're honored to be celebrating the accomplishments of our second National Young Woman of Distinction, Hadiya Harrigan. Hadiya was selected by Girl Scouts of the USA to receive this very special honor in Girl Scouting, for her Gold Award project. She is being recognized, along with nine other young women from around the country, as a 2015 National Young Woman of Distinction. This designation showcases Hadiya's extraordinary leadership over a project that had measureable and sustainable impact and addressed a national issue. Way to go Hadiya!
