2014 GSHG Gold Award Recipients

Georgia (PRWEB) May 06, 2014

Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is proud to celebrate our 2014 Gold Award Girl Scouts; 21 outstanding young women who have earned the most prestigious award in Girl Scouting and collectively contributed thousands of hours of service through values-based, girl-led action projects that spotlight critical local, national and global issues. These 21 teens from Georgia were honored at formal ceremonies throughout the Council's footprint on May 4, 2014.

It recognizes the work of Senior and Ambassador Girl Scouts, 9th – 12th graders, who have outstanding accomplishment in the areas of leadership, community service, and personal development. Each girl working toward the Girl Scout Gold Award spends a minimum of 80 hours planning and implementing a leadership project that puts the Girl Scout Promise and Law into action and makes a positive and lasting impact on her community.
