Identify an issue
Recognizing that many schools, youth activities and community gatherings have been suspended, Girl Scouts of the USA has recommended that all councils extend Highest Awards deadlines to Dec. 31, 2020. Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland has accepted this recommendation and would like to provide additional information on how that impacts the Gold Award. We encourage you to continue with your project and discuss the project digitally with your project advisor and community partners. Please feel free to postpone events as necessary and continue to monitor state and local guidelines.
Gold Award Proposal Forms need to be submitted no later than June 15, 2020. Gold Award Final Reports are due no later than Nov. 15, 2020 to allow time for review by the Highest Awards Review Committee. This extension provides flexibility for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors, earning the Gold Award. This announcement is particularly relevant for 12th grade Ambassadors who will bridge to the next program age level officially on Sept. 30, 2020 and typically would be no longer eligible to earn the Gold Award. Please understand there will be a large influx of projects at the end of December and it will take up to 30 days for you to receive feedback. If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
