Silver Awardee Creates Sustainable Dance Bags

Grace, a Juliette Girl Scout in Huntsville, chose to earn her Silver Award with a recycling project. She noticed that girls were using plastic grocery store bags to put their clothes in after dance class. With the help of a friend and some adults, Grace made 100% cotton bags that were large enough to hold all of the girls dance clothes. In order to prepare for this project, she earned her Preforming Arts Interest Project Award, and an Interest Project Award related to dancing. She coordinated with Dance Connection organizers to distribute her sustainable bags.

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.
