Bronze Award

Welcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll meet new people and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference. Download the Bronze Award guidelines to find out how.

You can pursue your Girl Scout Bronze Award if:

You're in fourth or fifth grade (or equivalent)

Troop leaders determine if and when their girls earn the Bronze Award. We encourage leaders to celebrate this accomplishment in a troop or service unit ceremony. We carry a selection of gifts for Highest Awardees, including patches and accessories, in our stores. Bronze Award pins are available for purchase on their own or as part of a presentation kit.

Submit signed copies of final report forms to Girl Scouts San Diego. We'll send each girl a certificate and letter of recognition. These forms provide important information to us about the impact girls are making in their community.

The absolute deadline for Juniors to submit a final report and earn their Bronze Award is Sept. 30 of their sixth grade year. Bridging Juniors officially become Cadettes on Oct. 1 each year and are no longer eligible.
