Luling Girl Scouts earn the Girl Scout Bronze Award

From staff and wire reports - June 28, 2012

Girl Scout Juniors in a Luling troop recently earned the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest award a registered Girl Scout Junior in grades 4 and 5 can achieve.

Earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award exemplifies a Girl Scoutís commitment to helping others and making a difference in their community. The award requires the completion of a series of leadership challenges and a "take action" project with a minimum of 20 hours spent building their team, exploring the community, choosing their project, planning it, putting the plan in motion, and spreading the word about the project.

Girl Scouts Bronze Award recipients Jessica Brown, Madalin Costella, Tatum Dugas, Remi Mato, Sydni Pagne, Madison Torres, Lakynn Tregre, Madelyn Williams and Emily Zeringue of Girl Scout Junior Troop 21346 put their organizational skills to good use by organizing a large room of props for their local performing arts and cultural center, the River Region Drama Guild. The project advisor was Linda Dugas.

The Girl Scouting mission is to build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. For more information about Girl Scouts or adult volunteer opportunities in St. Charles Parish, call the council office at 800-644-7571 or visit its website at www.gsle.org.
