Girl Scout Troop 372 members MaryAlyce, Heather, Saleena, sixth graders at Berry Middle School, Aaliyah, fifth grader at Hemphill Elementary and Capra, fifth grader at Riverchase Elementary, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their flag ceremony and etiquette project. The girls wanted to teach other girls about flag ceremonies, so they made a booklet for Girl Scout Brownies and other Girl Scout Juniors. They also performed a flag ceremony for the younger Girl Scouts to learn about the proper care for the flag. The girls enjoyed learning about the traditions involving the flag, and they enjoyed being a teacher to younger kids.
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.
