Bronze, Silver, and Gold Award Ideas and Examples
Emily King, from Troop 53701 in Roseville, earned her Silver Award by leading volunteers in creating and staining ten wooden benches for the Wildlife Science Center. She also created a step by step tutorial so others can build more benches for the Wildlife Science Center or other organizations.
Jackie Joriman (right) and Ellie Urista from Girl Scout Troop 53701 Over the last year, they have worked with multiple community groups to build a Gaga Ball Pit behind the Little Canada Elementary school.
This project was part of a Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. The award is designed to have the girls use their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world. The goal of the Silver Award is to take action and solve a problem in the community. The girls wanted to keep people active and outside, so they provided a new game, which is used at multiple Girl Scout locations - Gaga Ball.
This project could not have been done without the help of multiple organizations and volunteers. The lumber was donated by Lampert Lumber. The LCRA and Little Canada PTSA provided funding. The girls asked various volunteers to drill, cut and assemble the project. The city staff and officials help to find a location and facilitate the contractors for the concrete base. The adhesive was donated by Regupol America to attach the rubber matting to the concrete. As well as the school staff and parents who help to pick a location and funding.
Both girls are going into 9th grade at Roseville High School.
