Paine Primary Students Earn Bronze Award for Trussville Trails Project

Anna and Alex, fourth graders at Paine Primary School, and Gracen, Joriann, Haley and Tinley, fifth graders at Paine Primary School, and members of Girl Scout Troop 872, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Trussville Trails. The girls wanted to bring people to Trussville and help them learn about the community, so they produced a booklet on trails in the city. As they walked along the trails, they wrote poems and took pictures of different landmarks for the booklet. By scanning QR codes in the booklet, the girls can be heard reciting their poems. The girls also made a video of themselves reading the poems for Daisy troops, hoping that the video will help the younger troops earn more patches and learn about their city.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior (fourth and fifth grades) 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.
