According to the Great Falls Connection, “The Gold Award represents the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through remarkable Take Action projects that have sustainable impact in their communities and beyond. The Gold Award is earned by Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts and only 5.4 percent of eligible Girl Scouts successfully earn the Gold Award. Approximately 200 girls out of more than 60,000 scouts from 25 counties in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and D.C. earned the Gold Award. Gold Award Girl Scouts spend between one and two years on their projects, building on many prior years of Girl Scout participation.”

As per Great Falls Connection, “GREAT FALLS TROOP 1991 was formed when the girls were in Kindergarten and continued through high school. Over 12 years, the troop completed hundreds of hours of service, sold thousands of boxes of cookies, enjoyed many camping trips and high adventure activities, visited the birthplace of Girl Scouts in Savannah, Georgia, and traveled to the GS Chalet in Switzerland to complete a week of hiking, whitewater rafting, and activities with other Girl Scouts from around the world.”
