Girl Scouts has 3 levels of awards. The Bronze, Silver and Gold Award. In honor of their accomplishment, and to assist them in making their project sustainable, I told them I would do a blog for them. The following are the criteria the girls followed to comply to the standards for earning the silver award. My next 3 blogs will give you the opportunity to see what the girls created. The following guidelines are from the Girl Scout website Girl Scout Silver Award

Have you ever looked around your neighborhood or school and wondered how you could make a change for the better? Going for the Girl Scout Silver Award—the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn—gives you the chance to show that you are a leader who is organized, determined, and dedicated to improving your community. Earning the award puts you among an exceptional group of girls who have used their knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in the world.
