Girls Earn Gold Award

Jenell of Huntsville and Jasmine of Harvest earned their Gold Awards by working together to organize a fine arts program called "Expression Through the Arts" for youth in the area. The project was designed to encourage youth to participate in the arts.

Jenell and Jasmine helped launch a community awareness campaign with marketing materials including posters and signs posted through the community. Their goal was to encourage the program to continue in some form through the support of local organizations.

The girls say they have learned many lessons from their Gold Award project including proper planning, listening, how to set deadlines to complete tasks, and that by working together much can be accomplished.
