The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest earned award by Cadette Girl Scouts in 6th through 8th grades. As the second highest award in Girl Scouting, Silver Award projects must be completed while the girl is a Cadette, or by September 30 of the girl's 9th grade year. Staff support is available to all members and volunteers and may be obtained through email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. However, there is no official approval process at the council level. Approval for the Silver Award is the responsibility of the Girl Scout volunteer leader or advisor.
The Silver Award is not required for the Gold Award but earning it reduces the prerequisite from two Journeys to one for Senior or Ambassador levels. Ultimately, advisors have discretion in determining successful completion of Silver Award requirements.
Silver Award Recognition
Girls completing their Silver Award are eligible for individual recognitions. To be eligible to purchase recognitions, each girl must submit the Silver Award report form to a Girl Scouts of Colorado retail shop. The shop staff will be sure that that the achievement is recorded and that the girls receive their recognitions. Reports submitted electronically to email@example.com will be acknowledged. Please show that acknowledgement to the shop when purchasing recognitions. In addition, Girl Scouts of Colorado appreciates the opportunity to recognize all Silver Award recipients in the annual Highest Awards Celebration Program. For inclusion in the book, all paperwork must be received in a Girl Scout of Colorado retail shop no later than March 1. Those submitting their paperwork after the due date will be included in the program the following year.
If reports are not submitted, Girl Scouts of Colorado has no way to credit the girls with their achievement.
