Uniform Policy and Special Award Information


The GSUSA National Board updated the Girl Scout uniform policy as of October 2008 to reflect the changing needs of our members and transformation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Girl Scouts at each level have one required element (Tunic, Sash or Vest) for the display of official pins and awards which will be required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout Movement.

For all girls, the unifying look includes wearing a choice of a tunic, vest, sash for displaying official pins and awards, combined with their own solid white shirts, khaki pants or skirts and a scarf.  For adult members the unifying look of the uniform is a Girl Scout official scarf or tie for men, worn with the official membership pins, combined with their own navy blue business attire. Girl Scouts at the Daisy and Brownie levels will continue to have a full uniform ensemble available.


Most earned awards such as badges and pins by grade level are available for purchase on the official Girl Scout Online Store.

Special Recognition Awards and the Girl Scout highest awards such as Gold and Silver award items are not available for purchase online.  Council verification is needed for these items.

Please purchase Special Recognition and Highest Award items directly from your local Girl Scout Council,Council Shop or through Girl Scout Merchandise. To order from Girl Scout Merchandise please call 1-800-221-6707.
