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 Silver Award. We encourage you to continue with your project and discuss the project digitally with your troop and community partners. Please feel free to postpone events as necessary and continue to monitor state and local guidelines.
Silver Award Preapproval Forms need to be submitted no later than June 15, 2020. Silver Award Final Reports are due no later than Dec. 15, 2020 to allow time for review by the Highest Awards Review Committee. This extension provides flexibility for Girl Scout Cadettes, earning the Silver Award. This announcement is particularly relevant for 8th grade Cadettes who will bridge to the next program grade level officially on Sept. 30, 2020 and typically would be no longer eligible to earn the Silver 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.
