Local Girl Scouts earn Bronze Award (updated 8/21/20)
Girl Scouting’s highest awards—the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards—are a girl’s chance to make a lasting difference in the world.
Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is honored to present the members of Troop 20253 with the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest recognition for achievement in Girl Scouting for girls in grades 4-5. Members of the Troop include Payton Hiles, Eva Malmgren, Madison Ross and Chloe Sawyer.
The Bronze Award recognizes Girl Scouts who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects that address important community needs.
The Troop’s Bronze Award project began in the fall on 2019 and was completed August 2020.
No one wants to be lonely at recess. That is why the members of Troop 20253 chose to donate Buddy Benches to the students at CG Johnson Elementary School. A Buddy Bench is a special place on a school playground where a child can go when they want someone to talk to or play with. The members of Troop 20253 hope the benches will help local students for years to come. The Troop was supported in their Bronze Award effort by numerous local financial donors.
The members of Troop 20253 used their strengths, talents, and skills and put their plan into action to earn the Bronze Award while each taking a leadership role.
