Cadettes: Are you looking toward the Silver Award?


It’s that time in your Girl Scout career to look toward earning the Silver Award. But what is it? What do you have to do? When are trainings?

Great questions. Let’s start with the basics:

What is the Silver Award?

The Silver Award is the highest award that a Cadette can earn. Through about 50 hours of service to the community, you define a Take Action Project that will have a positive impact on the world around you. These hours are just a guideline, though. Read the Silver Award Guidelines for all the must-knows.

What do I need to do?

In general, this is how it breaks down:

  1. Go on a Cadette Journey.
  2. Identify issues you care about.
  3. Build your Girl Scout Silver Award team or decide to go solo.
  4. Explore your community.
  5. Pick your Take Action project.
  6. Develop your project.
  7. Make a plan and put it into motion.
  8. Reflect, share your story, and celebrate.

But first, it really starts with training. That’s the key right now:
