The Gold Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout can achieve. This prestigious award requires an Ambassador Girl Scout to design and implement a project that serves her community. It must consist of at least eighty hours of service while making a sustainable impact.
Councilwoman Bonner said, “These young women are very special and they set a great example of what it means to be a Girl Scout. They are the leaders of tomorrow who strive every day to be the best they can be and I congratulate them for earning their Gold Awards.”
