Troop 350 Earns Silver Award

Troop 350 members Madison, a student at Irondale Middle School, and Virginia, a student at Homewood Middle School, earned the Silver Award by starting a Daisy Girl Scout troop for the Avondale area. The girls met with potential troop leaders and scouted out meeting locations, bought supplies for activities and made plans for the new leaders to follow.
Homeschooled student Caitlin and Alabama School of Fine Arts student Madeline, both from Homewood, earned the Silver Award by raising pet care awareness for the Humane Society. The girls created educational posters, made blankets and toys for the animals and helped Humane Society personnel care for some of the animals. The girls learned what it takes to fully care for an animal and hope to have informed others on how to be a responsible pet owner.

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.
