Local Girls Earn Scouting Honor

STATE – This year 244 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 50-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 2011 year included education programs for recycling and environmental protection, sharing and teaching English as a second language to children, creating care packages and making a warm environment at a home for veterans, promotion of pet adoption and animal rights and many more wonderful demonstrations of girl leadership abilities.

Girl Scout Silver Award recipients will be honored at a ceremony on Saturday, May 14, from 2-4 p.m. at Seneca High School, Tabernacle.
