The Girl Scout Silver Award is leader approved! Once the project is finished, complete the online Silver Award Brag Sheet for official council recognition. You will receive a confirmation e-mail, which you can bring to any council shop to purchase your Girl Scout Silver Award pin.

Girl Scout Silver Award recipients will be invited to the Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont's annual award ceremony in the spring. In order to be honored at this ceremony, Silver Award Brag Sheets must be submitted by March 15. Girls who submit their brag sheets after this date will be honored at the next year's ceremony.
