Super Troop - Super G.I.R.L. - Super Service Unit Awards

The Super Awards showcase girls and adults working in partnership to give each girl an amazing Girl Scout experience. Surveys show that a satisfied and happy Girl Scout is having fun with her friends and has a quality experience engaged in meaningful activities throughout the year.

A Super Troop, Super G.I.R.L., or Super Service Unit meets deadlines for registration and membership, serves the community, uses VTK, participates in Product Program, and above all, gets out and does fun things while being change makers.

The new Super Awards recognize these super Girl Scout achievements with an additional cookie bonus for girls/troops and service units, and eligibility for an exclusive pin through the GSCTX Shop. 

This award application is due by May 1 of each membership year.

Be a Super Troop, Super G.I.R.L., or Super Service Unit!
