FINAL STEP IN THE Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri GOLD AWARD APPROVAL PROCESS 2013-2014 - Final Presentation & Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Showcase
After approval of the Girl Scout Gold Award Final Report, Gold Award candidates may choose to schedule and meet with the Gold Award Advisory Committee (GAAC) to evaluate their GS Gold Award project. At this step girls present their accomplishments in a final presentation, through photos, outcomes surveys, journals and/ or other media of their choice.
Gold Award candidates may choose to attend a Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Gold Award Showcase, eliminating a final presentation with the GAAC. At the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Showcase, Gold Award candidates attend, display and present their accomplishments to Girl Scout families, younger Girl Scouts, family, friends and leaders in the community.
Girl Scout Gold Award candidates who schedule and attend a final presentation with GAAC members are encouraged to attend the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Showcase, however, their final presentation submitted must be displayed at a Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Showcase. Final presentation will be returned to a Gold Award candidate after the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Showcase in which their project is presented to the community.
It is encouraged that Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Gold Award candidates attend a Showcase in person.
