Local Girls Earn Highest Awards in Girl Scouting

Cicero, N.Y. – Girls from throughout the 26-county region of the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways, including 223 local girls, have earned the highest awards in Girl Scouting, the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards.

The prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn.

In order to earn the award, girls must complete Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador Journeys, the essence of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, and demonstrate their leadership abilities by spending at least 80 hours working on a Gold Award Take Action project that creates a sustainable impact on their extended communities.

This year, 31 girls in our council have earned the award and will be recognized at a Young Women of Distinction Luncheon on May 3 at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse. Guest speaker for the event is OCC President Dr. Casey Crabill.

Girls that have earned the Girl Scout Silver and Bronze awards will be recognized at a dessert reception on May 18 at Camp Hoover in Tully.

The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award Girl Scouts in grades 6 through 8 can earn.
