Badges, Awards and Traditions

Girl Scout badges are a great way for a girl to explore her interests and learn new skills—and to remember every adventure and show the world what she’s accomplished. Girls also work hard to earn their awards that symbolize their dedication to making the world a better place.

Select your girl's grade level below to see every badge, pin, or other insignia available to Girl Scouts or visit the Award & Badge Explorer.

Traditions


Traditions give Girl Scouts a sense of history - and inspire them to be the best they can be. Sharing traditions with millions of Girl Scouts, adn the huge network of Girl Scout Alum who came before them, helps remind girls they belong to a big, powerful and inclusive siterhood.
