Bronze Award Final Report Form
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.
