Winfield Gold Awardee Cares for Critters

Girl Scout Senior Alexandra of Winfield recently earned her Gold Award with her project "Care for the Critters." The purpose of Alexandra's project was to reach out to the community, especially younger children, to teach them how to properly care for their animals. Her project was aimed at animal abuse and neglect, education and prevention. Alexandra's project was successful because she used fun, interactive techniques to engage children in learning about this topic. 15-year-old Alexandra attends Winfield City High School. Alexandra is a sophomore at Winfield City High School and is the daughter of Ed & Rachel.

The Gold Award is highest level of Girl Scout achievement. This award recognizes the Senior & Ambassador Girl Scout’s commitment to herself, her community, and her future. The girl who goes for the Gold embraces challenges, achieves excellence, and works diligently to make the world a better place, in her own unique way. Her leadership, vision, and boundless energy is an inspiration to all Girl Scouts. Each girl earning her Gold Award demonstrates excellence through a leadership project totaling more than 65 hours. Girls who earn their Gold Award are also recognized by the President of the United States, the U.S. Congress, the U.S. Armed Services, state legislatures, colleges and universities for admission and scholarship opportunities, and the American Legion.
