CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2012 GOLD AWARDEES!
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn. The path to the Girl Scout Gold Award requires a two-year undertaking, where girls complete training and use their talents and learned leadership skills to create a Gold Award Take Action project. This large-scale project requires a minimum of 80 hours of planning an implementation and must have a lasting impact on its targeted community. This year GSGLA will celebrate 267 Girl Scout Gold Awardees!! Click here to see a full listing of all of the awardees.

TOGETHERTHERE - HAVE YOU SIGNED THE PLEDGE?
A girl looks at the world around her; the country's leaders and captains of industry; at TV, movie, sports, and pop stars; at fashion magazines — what do her possibilities look like? Who are her role models? How can she be it, if she can't see it? It's time we made changes that support her path to success. Together, we can get her there. Go to www.ToGetHerThere.org for more information and to sign the pledge.
