MORIAH-A group of Moriah Girl Scouts have received the Bronze Award.
Caleigh Lamour, Makayla Stockwell, Harmony LaFountaine, Brooke Mildon and Rayven Perkins of Brownie/Junior Troop #4040 of Moriah earned the honor.
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Junior Girl Scout can earn. It recognizes that a Junior Girl Scout has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive impact on her community. Working toward the award demonstrates commitment to helping others, improving a community and the world, and becoming the best she can be.
The Bronze Award has four requirements. To receive the award, a Junior Girl Scout must complete two badges related to the Bronze Award project, complete one of the Girl Scout Signs, earn the Junior Aide Award, earn the Girl Scout Junior Leadership Award, and complete a Girl Scout Bronze Award service project that demonstrates the leadership skills she has learned as a Junior Girl Scout. The project must show she understands and lives by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
The Moriah scout projects took about 15-20 hours to complete.
Lamour and Stockwell completed their Bronze Award service project with Sue Morse at the Moriah Food Pantry.
LaFountaine, Mildon and Perkins completed their Bronze Award service project with the staff at the Ronald McDonald House and Fletcher Allen Hospital.
