The scouts are Lauren Errington, Kennedy Ertel, Laila Harding and Giavanna Raby. Their project advisor was Gina Raby.

Girl Scout Cadette Troop 20588 in Destrehan earned the Girl Scout silver award for cleaning up and beautifying their community through a variety of projects including plantings, trash pick-up at a park and repainting a USA map in a local school playground.
