The Gold Award is the highest recognition in Girl Scouting. An award with national standards, it acknowledges an individual's accomplishments, leadership, commitment, creativity and personal effort in trying to make the world a better place. Twenty-nine girls in the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts received the Gold Award. Only five percent of all high school Girl Scouts finish the requirements and project.
