Gold Award Rubric

GSESC’s Gold Award Committee created the Gold Award Rubric which is available in one of the links on this page. Girls can now use this rubric to help them understand what the committee is looking for in a Gold Award project. This will also be used in the interview to evaluate the Girl Scout’s Gold Award project. The rubric is very useful and should be reviewed before a girl turns in her proposal paperwork.
