Preparing for your Gold Award Interview



You’ve submitted your Gold Award Proposal to the Gold Award Committee for review… What’s next? The Gold Award Interview!

One of the best ways to minimize the amount of stress leading up to your Gold Award interview is to prepare for it.

Attire
Just like at any other interview, you should dress nicely…we recommend your Girl Scout uniform, or a nice outfit with your Girl Scout pins.

Materials
During an interview for a job or an internship, you might bring your resume, but during your Gold Award interview, you will want to bring your completed Girl Scout Gold Award Guidelines for Senior & Ambassador booklet and any other notes you may have from your Silver Award project and Journey books. At GSNC, your interview is open note; you can think through and write out as many different notes as you would like and bring them with you.

Interview Questions
During the interview, you will be asked a series of questions. We are going to ask about the Journey(s) you worked on, your Journey Take Action project, your Silver Award project (if you completed one), and finally, your proposed project including  the root cause you will be addressing, your plan for addressing the issue and how your project is sustainable.
Here are some sample questions you may be asked:
·         What is the community issue you will be addressing?
·         What do you think is root cause of your community issue?
·         How will you address this community issues?
·         What makes you passionate about this community issue?
·         How will your project be sustainable?
·         How does your project’s issue and impact connect to a national/ global issue?
