Earned Level Awards: Earned by completing requirements or demonstrating understanding of a concept, as outlined in Girl Scout program books, including bridging awards, journey award, and Daisy through Ambassador level awards.
Participation Patches and Pins: Supplementary insignia developed at the national or council level with a focus on participation. Some come with companion activity booklets. Includes American Flag Patch, fun patches, and the World Thinking Day Patch.
The Daisy Girl Scout Promise Center
The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
and to live by the Girl Scout Law.
This Promise Center is awarded to a girl when she has reached some understanding of the principles defined in the Girl Scout Promise. At each meeting girls should be encouraged to practice reciting the Promise,. Learning the Promise and understanding it’s meaning helps girls comprehend that Girl Scout meetings are a special place and the Girl Scouting program is different from their other activities.
The Learning Petal
Once a girl has earned the Promise Center, she can begin to learn each part of the Girl Scout Law. As they do so, they receive a Daisy Learning Petal to be placed in any order around the Promise Center on her vest or tunic. To earn the petals, the Girl Scout Daisy should be able to show and demonstrate some understanding of each of the Law components. Begin by reviewing what it means, for instance, to be “friendly and helpful”. The ask how she can show this. Perhaps at home she can spend time “helping” her parents with house hold duties or she can be “friendly” to a new girl at school.
Daisy Journey Awards
Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden
This Journey has three awards, which tie directly to the garden theme, recognizing girls’ progress in applying the Law to their lives.

- The Golden Honey Bee Award – represents taking action through a gardening effort for others to make the world a better place. The award is named Honey for the bee who is one of the Daisy Flower characters.
