Bronze Award (Girl Scouts of the USA)
The Bronze Award is the third highest award in Girl Scouts of the USA. It was introduced by GSUSA in 2001, and can only be earned by Girl Scouts at the Junior level.
Girls must be in 4th or 5th grade (or equivalent), be a registered Girl Scout Junior, and have completed a Junior Journey, including a Take Action project.
Bronze Award Steps
- Go on a Girl Scout Junior Journey.
- Build your Girl Scout Junior team.
- Explore your community.
- Choose your Girl Scout Bronze Award project.
- Make a plan.
- Put your plan in motion.
- Spread the word.
There are currently three Junior Journey programs to choose from, each Journey consists of earning three separate badges that fit together to form a single patch. The final badge is only earned after the completion of the Take Action Project.

Take Action Project
The Juniors in the troop must decide on an individual Take Action Project. Typically the project is related to the Journey they just completed. Upon completion of the Take Action Project, each girl has earned three badges related to their Journey and is now eligible to begin work on a Bronze Award.
Bronze Award Project
The Bronze Award Project is a team effort by a group of Juniors, usually from a single troop. The project's objective must be to benefit the local community and/or benefit Girl Scouting as a whole in some way. The project is to be girl-led, but, unlike the Silver and Bronze Awards, adults may be on-hand to assist and guide.
The approval process varies by council. Before beginning work on a Take Action Project or a Bronze Project, it is important to check with the local council.
