Scottsboro Girl Scouts Earn Silver Award

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.March 31, 2015– Nicole Culver and Tristian Culver, 7th Graders at Scottsboro Jr. High School and members of Girl Scout Troop 160, recently earned their Girl Scout Silver Award. Their objective was to present backyard farming as one possible solution to poverty. By promoting and encouraging backyard farming, the project helped to inspire other young people to try backyard farming. A benefit of the activity is that participants get to spend quality time with their families and gain a sense of pride and accomplishment. Additionally, the girls were able to share their produce with the local food bank (CASA).

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.
