Homeschooled student Caitlin and Alabama School of Fine Arts student Madeline, both from Homewood, earned the Silver Award by raising pet care awareness for the Humane Society. The girls created educational posters, made blankets and toys for the animals and helped Humane Society personnel care for some of the animals. The girls learned what it takes to fully care for an animal and hope to have informed others on how to be a responsible pet owner.
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.
