Badge Checklists (Badgez)

Checklists below include badges released as of July 2022!

If you'd like checklists for the retired 2001 set of badges, 
please scroll to the bottom of the page.

These badge checklists are created in Excel and allow you to track up to 12 girls of the same level by default.  There are instructions in the first tab for how to combine multiple workbooks to have more than 12 girls of the same level, or to form a workbook for a multi-level troop.  Each workbook contains a troop-level tracker that auto-fills completions as the 12 individual girl pages are updated.  Please read the Instructions tab before using the Excel version of these checklists.  They are a little sensitive to not following directions.  :)

If you only need PDFs of the badge checklists so that you can stick with the tried and true pen and paper method of updating, you may download those instead.  There are versions for both individual girl checklists and a troop level tracker for each level.

For all of the files on this page, if you're on a phone, hold down the link to choose to download or it will automatically try to open Google Sheets or Google Docs depending on what you're clicking on.  PCs should have no trouble.

My checklists are also being used as the Individual Girl pages in the Trax spreadsheets created and maintained by Audra Edmunds.  You can follow our progress each summer when new badges get released in that Facebook group if you'd like (make sure you answer all entry questions AND AGREE TO THE GROUP RULES to get approved):

Audra also helped me name my version of the checklists, so from now on, they'll be called "Badgez"!

Please note: GSUSA has revamped the 13 original Cookie Business Badges and the 13 Financial Literacy Badges over the last two years.  The old versions have been removed from these checklists, but if you still have them on hand, feel free to record them getting finished in the "Other Awards" section.

Google Sheets Users - My number one comment/question is about using these spreadsheets in Google Sheets instead of Excel, so I thought I'd elaborate here.  I don't use Google Sheets.  Never have.  Based on messages from people who have tried, these spreadsheets do not convert cleanly for Google Sheets.  There are some formulas and formatting that just don't work.  I won't create Google Sheets versions because I use some elaborate VBA macros in Excel to set up these pages and I don't have those same tools for Google Sheets.  You're more than welcome to try to convert them and clean up any weird formats and formula errors, but it's not something that I will personally support.  Good luck!
