North Alabama Girl Scouts Earn Bronze Award

Troop 10556
Several North Alabama Girl Scouts recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award.

Erin, student at Horizon Elementary, resident of Madison and member of Girl Scout Troop 10705, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for her project Cards for Seniors. Erin made and decorated many different cards and enjoyed seeing the smile they brought to the seniors she delivered them to.

Huntsville Troop 10556 members Kaitlyn, Sarah, students at the Academy for Science and Foreign Language, Ketara, student at Union Chapel Christian Academy, students at First Missionary Baptist Academy, and Tayon, student at Meridianville Middle School, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Preparing for a Disaster. Because of the 2011 tornadoes in North Alabama, the girls wanted to help people be more prepared for another disaster. They made a PowerPoint presentation explaining the importance of having an emergency kit ready and more.

Troop 10885 members Candace, Christy, Emma, Justise, Madison, Marlee, Marlyssa, Maya, Mia, Tuezdie, students at Endeavor, Kiersten and Elliana, home schooled, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Assisted Living Facilities Performances. The girls created a traveling talent how to take to assisted living facilities. They performed seven shows throughout North Alabama, where they danced, sang, did sign language and played the piano. The girls also delivered gift bags to the facilities’ residents.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
