Girl Scout Bronze Award Steps
The Bronze Award requirements changed in 2011, after the Journeys program was adopted by Girl Scouts around the country. The High Awards in Girl Scouts help girls develop skills like leadership, service, and career exploration. Both Juliettes and Troops are encouraged to find needs in their community and make positive change—to make the world a better place. In order to achieve the Bronze Award, a girl must:
Be a registered Girl Scout Junior in 4th or 5th grade
- Participate in a Take Action Project
- Complete a Junior Journey
- Complete at least 20 hours of service
Here is a cheat sheet of requirements to complete your Bronze Award!
- Complete a Junior Journey, either independently as a Juliette or with your Troop.
- Find a partner in the community to work with, either by brainstorming it yourself, or by referring to the GSNMT website for community partners
- Submit a Bronze Award Intent Form, available at www.nmgirlscouts.org
- Submit any applications for fundraising or in kind donations to Council—Keep in mind that you must be approved for fundraising prior to completion of the project. Refer to page 80 of Volunteer Essentials for a detailed description of GSNMT’s policies
- Complete 20 hours of service on the approved project—documenting all the fun along the way!
- Submit Final Report to the Bronze Award Liaison
