Twenty-four amazing young women have earned the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award this year! We’re excited to spotlight their amazing projects and how they have made their communities better!
Madison M. of Ontario is a senior at Wayne Central High School. For her Gold Award take action project she created signs for the cross country trails at her school so that all students can find their way on the course without needing help from an aide. All students, with or without disabilities, will benefit from the signs.
Lauren M. of Vestal is a junior at Vestal High School. Her project focused on improvements to the Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park. This included creating a new exhibit with nesting boxes for birds as well as repairing Wolf Woods.
Stephanie O. of Manlius is a junior at Fayetteville-Manlius High School. Her project addressed the lack of fresh produce for low-income families in her community. She organized volunteers from her community to harvest produce and deliver it to the FM Community Outreach Food Pantry. It will be sustained by the Science Honor Society at her school and by the pantry.
Karissa O. of Andover is a graduate of Andover Central School. For her project she focused on the ARC Recreational Park where she created nature trails and gardens for the adults with disabilities to use.
Over the next several weeks we will continue to feature these amazing young women! Are your girls working on earning their Girl Scout Gold, Silver, or Bronze awards? Let us know what they’re doing! E-mailing photos and info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
