This is the designation given by Girl Scouts of the USA to the top ten Gold Award Girl Scouts in the country each year. A Gold Award Girl Scout earns the title of National Gold Award Girl Scout by implementing an exceedingly awesome Gold Award project—one that reflects extraordinary leadership, has a measurable and sustainable impact, and addresses a local challenge related to a national and/or global issue. Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri can submit three nominations to Girl Scouts of the USA. Girls must use the GoGold Online system to be considered for nomination. The National Gold Award Girl Scouts are then honored at a national ceremony.
Each year, Prudential Financial offers the Spirit of Community Awards in partnership with the Prudential and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the program honors middle level and high school students for outstanding service to others at the local, state and national level.
