Girl Scout Silver Award

Welcome to the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest honor a Girl Scout Cadette can achieve.  All of the information that you and your team will need to start your Girl Scout Silver Award adventure is included in the links below.

Please Note:

  • The final reports for the Girl Scout Silver Award must be typed on the official Girl Scouts of Northern California Silver Award Final Report paperwork.  Any sent in on paperwork from another council or from GSUSA will be returned to the sender to be re-written on the correct paperwork.  
  • Send completed and signed Silver Award Final Reports to the San Jose council office. The address is printed on the top of the final report form.
  • No emailed Silver Award Final reports will be accepted.
  • Since the publication of the Silver Award Guidelines from GSUSA, they have added an additional Cadette level journey.  Any completed Cadette level journey is acceptable as the prerequisites for the Girl Scout Silver Award.
