Congratulations for considering working on the Silver Award!
This online approval tool is designed to be used by a Girl Scout Cadette and her leader, project adviser and/or parent. We will ask you a few questions to help you get on the right course for your project. These questions are directly based on GSUSA's national guidelines and requirements for the Silver Award. For more information about those guidelines, please consult your Cadette Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, the GSUSA website (http://www.girlscouts.org/program/highest_awards/silver_award.asp
) or the Nation's Capital website (http://www.gscnc.org/teen_awards.html
As of October 1, 2014, we will require that girls submit a copy of their online approval certificate. Those will be generated and emailed once a week to the email address submitted in the survey.
Suggestions about how to use this online approval tool:
1) Familiarize yourself with the GSUSA guidelines
2) Read the approval questions ahead of time on http://www.gscnc.org/teen_awards.html
and think about your answers
3) Once a week, we will generate approval certificates and email them to the email address you provide. Please hold onto this document as it will be required for purchase of a Silver Award pin as of October 1, 2014. You may want to hole-punch it and insert it in your Girls Guide to Girl Scouting in the Silver Award section.
