My D is a sophomore. Her girl scout troop is slowly phasing out and few girls of that age are very active members anymore. She has completed all the prerequisites for the gold award and I wonder if it is "worth it" in terms of importance/prestige for college applications. The award will take 65 hours of effort and the local GS council makes the girls jump through a lot of bureaucratic hoops to achieve it. Frankly, she could just do the project without the GS "endorsement" and it would be easier. So, CC community, is the Girl Scout Gold Award impressive to anyone in college admissions these day?
