Troop 350 Earns Bronze Award with Reading Project
Girl Scout Troop 350 members Maya, sixth grader at the Altamont School, Lydia and Zoe, sixth graders at Homewood Middle School, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Read All About It! The girls threw a party for second grade children in the STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading) program. At the party, the girls gave the children book bags they had decorated, as well as new books to read. Birmingham’s STAIR program tutors second graders who need extra help in reading.
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.
