Hello and welcome to the exciting opportunity that awaits you – earning your Silver Award!
Scarsdale Edgemont Girl Scouts are earning these awards in record numbers and we invite and encourage you to do it too! It’s not too difficult and it will add an incredible achievement to your resume and life experiences.
If you are looking for a Girl Scout Silver or Gold Award mentor in the Scarsdale/Edgemont area, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
To get started, please read the requirements.
Girls interested in earning the Silver Award begin by completing a Cadette journey.
Once you’ve done the Journey, you can fill in the application form for your Silver Award project. This project needs to:
– take you about 50 hours to complete;
– address a need in your community;
– be sustainable after you are finished (e.g. another troop agrees to take it on; the organization you are working with agrees to maintain it).
– you will need to find a project adviser from the organization your project benefits (NOT your troop leader or a parent) and a Girl Scout mentor – see below for Scarsdale mentor contacts.
Once you have finished your project, you will need to write up your project narrative, have it signed off by your project adviser and Girl Scout mentor, and submit to GSHH.
Each June, SEGS hosts a Gold/Silver Award ceremony and reception at the Betty Taubert Girl Scout House for all Scarsdale Edgemont Gold and Silver Award recipients. Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson also holds a ceremony in November for Silver Award recipients
