Troop 502 members Madison and Samantha, students at St. Francis Xavier from Irondale, earned the Silver Award by raising air pollution awareness at their school and decreasing their school’s environmental footprint. The girls put up fliers and broadcasted a school-wide commercial to educate students on how to be more conscious of air pollution and its effects. A more air-friendly policy has been established at their school as a result of the girls’ efforts.
The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette’s accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
