Girls have the option of earning one, two or three Girl Scout awards, and they can work toward them as one big team, as mini teams or individually.
The Interact Award
This award signifies that girls can advance peace in the world around them --
one interaction at a time. To earn it, girls must complete three of the nine
Interact Challenges -- though they can do as many challenges as they like! These challenges invite Girl Scout Cadettes to try small -- and positive -- new ways of interacting in their daily lives.
The Diplomat Award
This award focuses on how a diplomat "possesses skill or tact in dealing with others." To earn the award, Girl Scout Cadettes demonstrate that they can use something they have learned about relationships to design and implement a project that benefits others.
The Peacemaker Award
This award invites girls to collect relationship "tools" they can use and pass on to others along the journey. The girls earn the Peacemaker Award at the end of the journey by reviewing all the tools they've collected and making a commitment about how they will continue using them throughout their lives.
LiA (Leader in Action) Award
Girl Scout Cadettes have an opportunity to put their skills to work assisting Girl Scout Brownies on their quest. Girl Scout Brownies (and their volunteers!) will appreciate having Girl Scout Cadettes along on the journey, and Girl Scout Cadettes will benefit from having the opportunity to have a position of responsibility. The steps for Girl Scout Cadettes to earn the LiA are in the Adult Guide for Brownie Quest. Your Girl Scout council is a great resource to identify Girl Scout Cadettes who might be interested in earning this award.
