About the Silver Award
The Silver Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout in the sixth through eighth grades can earn. The Silver Award recognizes the work of Girl Scout Cadettes who demonstrate leadership skills culminating in 50 hours or more dedicated toward a service project that makes a difference in their community. It can be done as an individual or with a group. If done with a group, a girl must be responsible for a specific part of the project and evaluate her contribution to the project and the group.
