  • Congratulations to Our 2015 Gold Award Recipients

    127 Girl Scouts in the Hudson Valley earned the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award this past year, the highest national award a Girl Scout can earn. In earning the award, these young women demonstrated outstanding leadership, organizational and networking skills. A special ceremony was held at the Poughkeepsie Grand on Sunday, March 7th to honor these Gold Award recipients.    

    “I have learned that the impossible is possible when you have a goal or dream, and with the support of leaders and sister Girl Scouts, you can be successful in your aspirations,” shares one Gold Award recipient. “Going for my Gold Award not only taught me to be a good leader but also about teamwork, responsibility, communication, going out of my comfort zone, and welcoming any challenges,” shared another.

    It’s not easy to earn Girl Scouting’s highest leadership award. There is no shortcut; completing the award’s multiple requirements takes several years to complete, and the final requirement is a significant service project with lasting impact. The Girl Scout Gold Award is a nationally recognized symbol of leadership, and recipients are given greater consideration for acceptance and scholarships to top colleges and universities and advanced military service ranking.  The 127 Girl Scouts from the Lower Hudson Valley region who earned their Gold Award this year, represent 21% of eligible girls, which far exceeds the national average.
