GSNI's WinDuPec Service Unit hosted a ceremony recently presenting Girl Scout highest awards! The event was held at Pecatonica Middle School and included recognition for a local Girl Scout who earned the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. The event also included a Flag Ceremony and Bridging Ceremony where Girl Scouts at each level walked across the bridge to the next level of Girl Scouting!
Girl Scout Cadettes who earn the Girl Scout Silver Award prove they are leaders who are organized, determined, and dedicated to improving their community. Earning the Silver Award involves completing a Girl Scout Journey and a suggested minimum of 50 leadership hours spent identifying critical issues, creating a team or choosing a solo option, exploring a community, and then producing and implementing a Take Action Project. Girl Scout who earn their Silver Award establish themselves as trailblazers who have used their knowledge and skills to positively change their own surroundings.
