The 2022 Gold Award Girl Scouts* demonstrate the breadth of issues American teens feel are most prevalent in society today. The most frequent project focuses include:
GSUSA’s* 111 councils were each provided the opportunity to nominate one of their outstanding Gold Award Girl Scouts* to receive a national scholarship for over $2,000 each. The Girl Scouts* Gold Award scholarship recipients represent $225,000 invested, made possible by Insight Global, The Coca-Cola Foundation, and Kappa Delta Foundation.
Gold Award Girl Scouts* become innovative problem-solvers, empathetic leaders, confident public speakers, and focused project managers. They learn resourcefulness, tenacity, and decision-making skills, giving them an edge personally and professionally. As they take action to transform their world, Gold Award Girl Scouts* gain tangible skills and prove they’re the leaders our world needs.
According to recent research, Gold Award Girl Scouts* are more likely to fill leadership roles at work and in their personal lives. They’re more civically engaged than their non-Girl Scout* peers. Eighty-seven percent (87%) of Gold Award Girl Scouts* agree that earning their Gold Award gave them skills that help them succeed professionally. Seventy-two percent (72%) said earning their Gold Award helped them get a scholarship. Changing the world doesn’t end when a Girl Scout* earns her Gold Award. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of Gold Award Girl Scout* alums take on leadership roles in their everyday lives.
