Bronze. Silver. Gold. The Highest Awards a Girl Scout can earn.
All three awards give you the chance to do big things while
supporting an issue you care about. You might plant a community garden
at your school or inspire others to eat healthy foods for your Bronze,
advocate for animal rights for your Silver,
