Bronze Award

Welcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll meet new people and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference. Download the Bronze Award guidelines to find out how.


IMPORTANT: As of Oct. 1, 2016, Girl Scouts who need to earn funds to support their Bronze, Silver or Gold Award Projects must participate in the Fall Product and Girl Scout Cookie programs, selling the minimum number of cookies and fall product (per Volunteer Essentials) as their first money-earning activity.

  • Girl Scouts: Sign up for a fun Bronze Award Bootcamp session to learn the basics and start planning your project!

  • Leaders: Check out our new Bronze Award eLearning tool to help guide your girls through the award process!

NEW! Bronze Award recipients are invited to the Bronze and Silver Award Celebration! Girls enjoy partying with a live DJ, playing games and receiving special recognition for their achievements. Join us on Sept. 24 in Vernon Hills or at the Friendship Center on Sept. 25! Register>>
