Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania (GSWPA) congratulates 71 Girl Scouts on earning the ‘Girl Scout Gold Award’, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

These Gold Award Girl Scouts cumulatively logged more than 5,500 hours of service, while designing and implementing projects to benefit their communities through education and resources.

While each Gold Award Girl Scout pursues an individual project that aligns with her interests or aspirations, each project provides a sustainable solution to the root cause of an issue, including gaps in community resources, youth education opportunities, environmental conservation, and several others.

The achievements of these Gold Award Girl Scouts are celebrated at an Awards Ceremony. For those Girl Scouts who attend a ceremony, a summary of their project is shared while they receive their Gold Award pin, which they wear on their Girl Scout uniform to signify the completion of the highest award.

Through earning their Girl Scout Gold Award, Girl Scouts distinguish themselves as community leaders by following their vision and passion to make their corner of the world a better place. In recognition of this achievement, Gold Award Girl Scouts can benefit from exclusive scholarships from colleges and universities, and may enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces at an advanced rank.

Below are the names of the Gold Award Girl Scouts who reside in the South Hills – Mon Valley Messenger distribution area.
