Troop 1061 Earns Silver Award

Troop 1061 members Rebecca, Carmen and Kimmi of Helena decided to turn an empty field at the Shelby County Humane Society into a playground for dogs to earn their silver awards. The girls held a fundraiser at a local restaurant to help collect funds for supplies and dog obstacles. Through their efforts the girls were able to repair the fence, add a dog tunnel, a small pool, a dog run and a tetherball.

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.
