How to earn the Girl Scout Bronze Award
- Build your Girl Scout Junior team
- Explore your community
- Decide on a project to work on
- Make a plan of action
- Put your plan in motion
- Spread the word
Juniors team up with sister Girl Scouts to explore their community, discover a need or issue they care about, and work together to address it. It's a chance to create a plan and make an impact on their community.
Working in a Group
Girls must work in a group, whether it is with their troop or with a group outside of Girl Scouting.
All of the requirements for the Bronze Award must be completed by Juniors (grades 4–5) by September 30 of the year they leave grade 5.
The Bronze Award Take Action Project requires a minimum of 20 hours per Girl Scout.
Leaders or advisors helping with the Bronze Award decide if the girls have fulfilled the requirements and chosen an appropriate project. When the project is completed, leaders must submit the Bronze Award Final Report to GSSEM.
The Bronze Award serves as a foundation to earning the Silver and Gold Awards.
Honor Awards Ceremony
Girls who successfully complete their Bronze Award Final Report are invited to GSSEM's annual Honor Awards Ceremony, which is usually held in May. Bronze Award pins will be awarded at the reception.
