The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award girls in grades 6-9 or are the ages 11-14 can earn as a Cadette Girl Scout. It represents a girl's accomplishments in Girl Scouting and her community as she grows and works to improve her life and the lives of others. The first four requirements of the award help girls build skills, explore careers, gain leadership skills and make a commitment to self-improvement. The project can be undertaken when the first four requirements are completed. It can be done as an individual or with a group. If done with a group, a girl must be responsible for a specific part of the project and evaluate her contribution to the project and the group.
