Highest Awards Deadline
Many Bronze, Silver and Gold Award project plans have been impacted
because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, Girl Scouts is
offering a special deadline extension for girls currently in the
process of earning these awards. Recognizing that many schools,
youth activities and community gatherings have been suspended, and
that we are navigating a period of rapid change, Girl Scouts is
offering a three-month extension from Sept. 30 to December 31, 2020,
to provide flexibility for Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors and
Ambassadors earning Girl Scouts’ Highest Awards. This is particularly
relevant for 5th grade Juniors, 8th grade Cadettes, and 12th grade
Ambassadors who will bridge to the next program age level officially
on September 30, 2020 and typically would be no longer eligible to
earn the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, respectively.
Support girls to adjust their highest award projects.
The safety and health of our Girl Scouts is our top priority.
We urge Girl Scout families to take the time they need to acclimate
without the added stress of impending deadlines. Then, when girls are
ready, let’s encourage them to flex their problem-solving muscles and
adjust how they plan and implement their projects, rather than put
their projects on hold. This will show girls that we’re confident in
their ability to be the change our community needs through this crisis.
