Girl Scout Bronze Award

Welcome to the Girl Scout Bronze Award, a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference.

Fulfilling the requirements for the Girl Scout Bronze Award starts with completing one Girl Scout Junior journey. Each journey you complete gives you the skills you need to plan and implement your Take Action project. When you go for the Bronze Award, you represent what Girl Scouts can achieve in their communities. And, of course, you want to do that in a way that’s fun for you—and for everyone else involved, too!

Earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award involves the time to complete a journey, and then a suggested minimum of 20 hours building your team, exploring your community, choosing your project, planning it, putting your plan in motion, and spreading the word about your project.

The suggested hours help you think about your commitment to doing your very best with each step. That's different for every Girl Scout, so these hours aren't a rule, just a friendly reminder. You’re a Girl Scout, which means you will earn your award with courage, confidence, and character and make a difference in the world around you!
