Troop 631 Earns Girl Scout Silver Award

Troop 631 members Sara and Alexi, students at Discovery Middle School in Madison, earned the Silver Award when they hosted a spa day, inviting girls to come enjoy a fun day of relaxation. Sara and Alexi wanted to help others boost both their spirits and self-esteem while sharing an overall positive, carefree experience. The girls were able to collect donations in order to provide manicures, facials and goody bags for the participants.

Jennifer and Melissa from Liberty Middle School in Madison, and Megan from Discovery Middle School, earned the Silver Award by organizing a book drive for a local hospital. The girls put up fliers and set up boxes in various schools and locations around the community for people to donate. The girls learned how important it is to help others and how much others are interested in helping their community.

Kaitlyn, from Liberty Middle School, and Harmony, from Discovery Middle School, earned the Silver Award by helping clean up Camp Trico. The girls love Camp Trico and knew their experience there could be better if it were cleaner. They, along with other volunteers, were able to clean up one of the camp trails, as well as paint one of the cabins. The girls hope to inspire others to continue on with their project and clean up even more of the camp.

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.
