“Daisy/Brownie Day” Earns Sylacauga Girl Scouts Bronze Award

Marly, Katie, Sydney, Krista, Caitlyn, Kelsey, Hannah, Kathie and Savannah from Girl Scout Troop 218 in Sylacauga earned the Bronze Award for their “Daisy/Brownie Day” project. In preparation for the event, the girls first created a venue and distributed flyers around the neighborhood. They also brainstormed activities for their fellow Girl Scouts to enjoy such as making pieces of jewelry and constructing paper dolls. The girls identified new talents such as working with children, leading songs and organizing games. Most importantly, these girls learned to compromise with others. The girls hoped that this project would enhance their abilities to be a leader as well as being a role model for their fellow Girl Scouts.

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.
