Troop 434 Earns Silver Award

Madison girls from Troop 434 Jessica and Eve, from Liberty Middle School, Dana from Saint Johns and home-schooled Mary Elizabeth, earned the Silver Award by hosting a pet fair in which animal experts and informational activities were used to promote pet awareness. Experts held demonstrations, provided handouts and offered numerous pet products. The girls each contributed to the cause contacting animal shelters and pet stores, finding a location and handing out flyers.

Jennifer, Rachel and Rebecca from Liberty Middle School and home-schooled Courtney, also from Madison, earned the Silver Award by offering valuable information and promoting overall animal awareness for members of the community. The girls contributed individually creating educational games and activities, providing informational speakers and developing handouts for the event. The girls hope to have spread knowledge and valuable information about the needs of animals to other Girl Scouts.

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.
