The Girl Scout Brownie Wings are often given at year-end award ceremonies.

Legacy Awards

The Legacy badges are based on activities that Girl Scouts have been doing since 1912. There are seven groups of Legacy badges: Artist, Athlete, Citizen, Cook, First Aid, Girl Scout Way, and Naturalist. The Legacy badges give girls variety and choice, so they'll have lots to do and they get to pick which badges they're most interested in. Plus, they'll see how relevant these topics still are to girls today. See a chart of the National Proficiency Badges (PDF).

Skill Building Awards

Girls can add more badges, depending on what topics interest them. These Skill-Building badges come together in three packets, one for each of the three Journeys. See a chart of the National Proficiency Badges (PDF).

Make Your Own

If there's a skill that girls feel they need, if there's more they want to understand about a particular topic, or if there's just an area where they want to have some fun, they can make themselves an official Girl Scout badge to learn how. Girls write the steps, complete them, and design and order a badge online. Girls can make one badge for each year.
