Girl Scout Bronze Award

The Highest Honor a Girl Scout Junior Can Achieve!

 

Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) - Girl Scout Bronze AwardWelcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, your leadership adventure where you earn the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your Girl Scout Troop or team plan and complete your Take Action Project, you will develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference in the world.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award Take Action Project takes look at the root of the problem and try to find long-term solutions that will have an impact even after your initial work. Take the Take Action Quiz to find out how much you really know about Take Action projects, and start thinking of ways you can take the lead as a community advocate.

This award is designed to be accomplished during 4th and 5th grades, and must be completed by the September 30th directly after you have graduated from 5th grade.
