Junior Girl Scout Teaches Others to Build Through Art

Allison of Troop 125 held an art class for Brownie Girl Scouts as well as non-member girls kindergarten through 3rd grade. She led the girls in earning the Building Art Try-It. She and the girls designed a meeting place for handicapped Girl Scout Troops, and they discovered different materials to make different things, and learned to build a city out of boxes, paper and other materials. Through earning her Bronze Award, Allison learned that it was important to plan enough time to get a project completed.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior 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.
