Check It Out! Gardendale Troop 30024 Earns Bronze Award

Girl Scout Troop 30024 members Elizabeth, Khari, Kameron, Preslie, students at Snow Rogers Elementary, Aislyn, fourth grader at Fultondale Elementary, Jordon, fifth grader at William Intermediate, Zoe, fifth grader at Gardendale Elementary, and Mariah, fifth grader at Mt. Olive Elementary, recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award for their project Check It Out.

The girls gathered books about Girl Scouts and its founder Juliette Gordon Low and donated them to Snow Rogers Elementary and Fultondale Elementary. Through their project, the girls hope to teach others more about Girl Scouting and show why they like being Girl Scouts.

“I like that I’m not too young to make a difference in other girls’ lives,” said Preslie.

Khari said, “I learned that I can be a hero without powers.”

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.
