BRONZE AWARD: The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can earn. The Bronze Award can only be earned as a group award; the girls must demonstrate leadership skills and a commitment to helping others and improving their communities.

SILVER AWARD: The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest honor for Cadette Girl Scouts. It recognizes their outstanding efforts to improve their own lives and the lives of others. The award can be earned individually or by a small group of 3-4 girls. The 8-step process begins with completing a Cadette Journey. Each girl must complete a minimum of 50 hours on the project to earn the Silver Award. Silver Award projects are focused on producing positive community change. Girls will identify an issue that impacts their community, explore the community and the issue, and choose and carry out a take action project.
