Gem Awards are the highest award a girl can earn at each level. Each Gem Award acknowledges girls for going above and beyond just attending meetings and earning badges, and rewards them for their efforts in taking to heart the most important aspects of our program. To earn these awards you must do the following:
- Earn the Discovery Award at your level.
- Earn at least one Servant’s Heart Award for each year of membership at your level.
- Earn the Make a Difference Award at your level. (Does not apply to Penguins)
- Earn the Life Skills Achievement Award at your level
- Earn the Liberty Award at your level
- Earn the Fruit of the Spirit Award at your level
- Earn the Leadership Award at your level (Does not apply to Penguins)
This award is worn around the level tab. It remains on the vest when advancing levels. Pin says, “Above & Beyond, Emerald Award” or appropriate level, around the level gem.
Leaders may wear the Ruby Award when they have led the girls in their troop through each of the requirements above.
