Requirements:

In honor of the 100th year of Girl Scout Gold Award, Oliver, Wickes & Associates established a $1,000 scholarship.

Leadership, determination, perseverance and creativity—skills developed through the progressing levels of the Girl Scout program—are necessary for the successful completion. The essence of the Gold Award is a personal challenge requiring a girl to stretch her skills and abilities and step forward as a leader to meet a community need for which she has a passion and will to create a sustainable change.
