Bronze Award Project Edit

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. Each scout is expected to contribute 20 hours to the project. The project is to be girl-led, but, unlike the Silver and Gold Awards, adults may be on-hand to assist and guide.

Approval Edit

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.
