“Kid Konnect” Project Earns Glencoe Girl Scouts Bronze Award

Kelsey, Jordan, Jessica and Mckenna of Girl Scout Troop 641 of Glencoe earned the Bronze Award for their work with a Glencoe kindergarten teacher and classroom. Entitled “Kid Konnect,” the girls were eager to implement their project in hopes to help students as well as their teachers and parents become more involved. In addition, the girls developed hands-on activities to help students learn their alphabet, numbers and reading, at a faster rate in a way that was more enjoyable. The Girl Scouts wanted to make learning a more fun experience for the students and had a great time helping everyone become more successful in their learning skills.

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.
