There are girls who dream of making the world a better place, and then there are girls who go out and make the world a better place.

Gold Award Girl Scouts are the dreamers who have shown they can make a difference. Earning the Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout can achieve, signifying a mark of excellence. Young women who have earned this award have gone on to tackle causes near and dear to their hearts and driven change throughout their communities with ideas and innovations.

Their dedication and heart-led service are leaving a beautiful mark on the world, one whose ripple effects touch many. Here, we honor their stories and achievements and hope that their passion for a better future ignites the same fire in other women around the world.


CircleAround is operated by a wholly owned subsidiary of Girl Scouts of the USA. The site serves women nationwide by providing content that is uplifting, thought-provoking, and useful. We make revenue distributions back to GSUSA so they can further their mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.
