Girl Scouts honors 253 girls with Bronze Award – Highest Girl Scout award earned by fourth and fifth grade girls


530x220Bronze

The Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore honored 251 Girl Scouts from Monmouth and Ocean Counties with the Girl Scout Bronze Award on Wednesday, October 19 at the Girl Scouts’ Program Activity Center. The Bronze Award is the highest recognition for achievement in Girl Scouting for girls in grades 4-5.

Girl Scouting’s highest awards—the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards—are a girl’s chance to make a lasting difference in the world. 

The Bronze Award recognizes Girl Scouts who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects that address important community needs. 

Every girl used their strengths, talents, and skills and put their plan into action to earn the Bronze Award while each taking a leadership role.
