Madeleine from Maddox Middle School earned the Girl Scout Silver Award when she began a letterboxing project to get others interested in the heritage of her community. She created and planted the letterboxes at various historical locations in her community, and participants found them using clues Madeleine posted online. She hopes the project will continue to influence people to be more interested in history. The clues to the boxes’ locations are posted online, so they will remain in place so others can find them.
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.
