The two awards are part of a series of Girl Scout’s highest awards, with the Girl Scout Gold Award being the ultimate achievement. The girls who gathered in December had completed their projects as Girl Scout Juniors (4th - 5th grade) and Girl Scout Cadettes (6th - 9th grade). When asked to reflect on their service projects, they said the big projects can be “scary,” take lots of “perseverance,” but “impacting your community” is ultimately “fun.”
