Girl Scouts of Gateway Council 2011 Award Recipients
340 Girl Scout Juniors (grades four and five) earned the Bronze Award, 118 Girl Scout Cadettes (grades six through eight) earned the Silver Award., and 22 Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors, (grades nine through twelve) earned the Girl Scout Gold Award.
The Girl Scout Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards are the highest recognitions a girl can achieve as a Girl Scout.
Nationally, less than 5% of eligible Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award each year. Equivalent in status to the Boy Scouts Eagle Award, the Girl Scouts Gold Award requires a significant amount of personal hours spent on a project that will have lasting impact on the community.
