Highest Award for Girl Scout Juniors in grades 4 or 5
The Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can earn, requires her to learn the leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through on a project that makes a positive impact on her community. Working towards this award demonstrates her commitment to helping others, improving her community and the world, and becoming the best she can be.
Girls may work on the award individually if they complete the previous Bronze Award and submit it to council headquarters by September 30, of the current year. All Bronze Awards completed after this date must be earned using the Journey requirements and must be completed with a group, not earned individually.
All of the requirements for the Bronze Award must be met before the girl moves up to Girl Scout Cadettes. Earning the Bronze Award is not a prerequisite to earning the Girl Scout Silver Award for girls in grades 6-8 or the Girl Scout Gold Award for girls in grades 9-12. The Bronze Award Report form must be submitted to council headquarters to order the Bronze Award insignia.
