The Girl Scout Gold Award has evolved from a long line of Girl Scout leadership awards going back as far as 1919. The Girl Scout Gold Award was first introduced in 1980, but has been known as the Golden Eaglet, the Curved Bar, and the First Class award throughout Girl Scout history. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout between 14 and 18 can earn. Currently between 5-6 percent of eligible Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award annually. The Gold Award recognizes the work of Girl Scouts who demonstrate leadership culminating in 80 hours or more, dedicated towards a service project that has lasting effects in the community.
This event will celebrate this year's "class" of 44 Girl Scout Gold Award recipients from RI, southeastern MA and Pawcatuck, CT. Women who have previously achieved the Gold Award or its equivalent (Golden Eaglet, Curved Bar, First Class) are invited to attend and show their support. They'll have a special role to play.
The event will also feature the winners of the first annual Young Women of Distinction Award -- presented to three outstanding Gold Award projects from this year's class, set apart by their creativity, impact and sustainability.
Tickets are $20 apiece and may be purchased online with a credit card at www.gsri.org. All are welcome to celebrate these accomplished and selfless young women.
Corporate sponsorships are available.
