Girl Scouts of Connecticut honored its 2010 Gold Scouts during a special ceremony on June 6 at Saint Joseph College. The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement a girl can earn in Girl Scouting. An award with national standards, it represents a girl's accomplishments, leadership, commitment, creativity, and personal contributions to making her community a better place to live.

This year, 50 young women from around the state earned their Gold Award and learned that one girl in a leadership role can truly make a difference.
