Madison County Girls Earn Their Silver Award

Troop 10619 members Ellen, Rachel, Olivia, Lindsay, Alicea, Hannah, Susan and Riley combined their love of wildlife and service to the community into their Silver Award project. After researching some options they decided to narrow their focus from wildlife to birds. At their service unit encampment they taught younger Girl Scouts to make birdhouses, and to make bird fountains out of flower pots. In addition, they taught the girls ways to identify different types of birds. The birdhouses were later installed at the Land Trust of Huntsville.

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.
