The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can receive. Included in the requirements for Bronze Award is a community service project; toward that requirement, these three Scouts from Troop 4861 collected donations of gently used blankets and linens to be distributed to area animal shelters and hospitals.
Here is an excerpted overview of the award from the GSA’s web site:
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you’ll 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.
Before beginning any work on your Bronze Award, please check with your Girl Scout council to know your council’s transition timeline.
Here is an overview of the requirements to earn the Girl Scout Bronze Award. In order to fully understand what councils expect from girls, please refer to the Bronze Award girl guidelines, the Bronze Award Adult guide, and the FAQs. For further information, please contact your local Girl Scout council.
