The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award that a Girl Scout age 14 to 18 may earn. The Gold Award project is the culmination of all the work a girl puts into “going for the Gold.” The project is something that fulfills a need within a girl’s community (whether local or global), creates change and hopefully is something that becomes ongoing.

To highlight girls throughout the community who will be awarded this high honor, the Girl Scout Gold Award ceremony will take place March 27 at the Heard Museum.

Ahwatukee Foothills resident Diamond Williams, 18, is a Girl Scout on a mission, and her service project has won her the honor of the Girl Scout Gold Award.

For her Gold Award project, Williams created an “elderly go green” campaign to teach elderly people about energy efficiency and saving money. She taught them about using earth friendly products and wanted to educate them so they would educate others. She then redirected her project to focus on the entire community, held informational meetings and handed out brochures on going green to all people, not just the elderly. She also showed people how to use energy efficient appliances from demonstrations inside people’s kitchens.

Williams graduated from Desert Vista High School last May and currently attends Arizona Western College in Yuma. She is studying media arts and broadcasting.

She is a lifetime Girl Scout member who still helps her younger sister with cookie sales and loves community service. “You are never too old to be a Girl Scout,” she said. “I am anxiously awaiting my lifetime membership pin. It should arrive any day!”
