Local Girls Win Girl Scout Silver Award

CHERRY HILL  – This year 247 girls from the Girl Scouts of Central & Southern NJ recently earned the Girl Scout Silver Award, the second highest award a girl can earn in Girl Scouting.

A girl who earns the Girl Scout Silver Award completes components that help her build skills in leadership, communication, time management, teamwork, dedication, responsibility, goal setting and commitment. She then combines all of the skills that she has gained through this process to create and implement a 40-hour project that makes a difference in her community. Girls choose projects based on an issue they feel passionately about and take action to make a positive impact.


Some of the projects for the 2010 year included education programs for recycling and environmental protection, sharing and teaching Asian culture through an interactive program for children, creating care packages and making a warm environment at a home for Veterans, promotion of Spanish language through literacy for children in Camden, and many more wonderful demonstrations of girl leadership abilities.

Girl Scout Silver Award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on Sunday, May 23, at Community Middle School in Plainsboro.
