Girl Scouts of Nassau County Gold Award 2014 Ceremony honored 70 Girl Scouts from Nassau County, New York who earned their Girl Scout Gold Award in the 2013-2014 Girl Scout year. These Girl Scouts wove at least 80 hours of community service and advocacy into their busy schedules when they developed their Gold Award "Take Action" projects.

The completed project entails identifying an issue, investigating the issue, building a team, creating a plan that contains a sustainable and measurable solution, carrying out the plan and educating and inspiring others to act.

Main article: Gold Award

The Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouts, focuses on Senior and Ambassador’s interests and personal journey through leadership skills and service. The Gold Award requirements were updated in the fall of 2010. Fulfilling the requirements for the Girl Scout Gold Award starts with completing two Senior or Ambassador Journeys, or having earned the Silver Award and completing one Senior or Ambassador Journey. Each Journey you complete gives you the skills you need to plan and implement your Take Action project. After you have ful lled the Journeys requirement, 80 hours is the suggested minimum to take the steps necessary to achieve your goal. This prestigious award is de nitely a plus when applying to colleges and financial scholarships. A Girl Scout who has earned her Gold Award automatically rises one rank in any of the U.S. military branches.
