Gold Award Girl Scouts: Issues of the world, meet your match.

Gold Award Girl Scouts

Issues of the world, meet your match. 

Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers and the doers who take “make the world a better place” to the next level.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the mark of the truly remarkable—proof that not only can she make a difference, but that she already has.

Seniors and Ambassadors who earn the Gold Award tackle issues that are dear to them and drive lasting change in their communities and beyond. Think of the Gold Award as a key that can open doors to scholarships, preferred admission tracks for college, and amazing career opportunities.

Hi, my name is Jessica Borum and as a Gold Award Girl Scout I am so excited to be working with young women as they endeavor to earn their own Gold Awards. I have been a Girl Scout since I was six years old and grew up attending Girl Scouts of Central Indiana camps, events, and programs, and I am honored to help girls on their journey to earn Girl Scout’s highest award.
