The Girl Scout Council of Tropical Florida, Inc. presented 39 local Girl Scouts with the highest girl-earned achievement in Girl Scouting – the Gold Award. The award ceremony took place on Sunday, May 6th at Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens. One hundred Girl Scouts were also recognized for earning the second highest honor in Girl Scouting – the Silver Award.
The Gold Award recognizes a girl’s personal journey through leadership skills, career exploration, self-improvement, and service. Prior to beginning a Gold Award project, a girl must have completed two Girl Scout journeys or have earned the Silver Award and completed one journey. After fulfilling the requirements, girls must identify an issue, investigate it thoroughly, build a team, create a plan, present this plan, gather feedback, take action, and lastly educate and inspire others. These requirements enable girls to develop skills, practice leadership, explore career possibilities, and discover their self-potential.
