B’ville Girl Scouts earn Gold and Bronze

— Baldwinsville’s Kaitlyn Allen and Nicole Peinkofer, along with 11 other local Girl Scouts, will earn their Girl Scout Gold Award later this month.

The prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a girl can earn. In order to earn the award, girls must demonstrate their leadership abilities, completing Journey activities, the essence of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and then spend at least 80 hours working on a Gold Award Take Action project that is meant to have sustainability within the community.

In addition, Troop 10380 of Baldwinsville and Fulton and Troop 10386 of Baldwinsville are two of 18 local troops to earn the Bronze Award, which is the highest award for Girl Scout juniors in fourth and fifth grades. To earn the Girl Scout Bronze Award, girls must learn leadership and planning skills necessary to follow through on a project that makes a positive impact on her community. Girls can work within their troops to earn this award.

Area Girl Scouts will be recognized at three ceremonies throughout the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways, for earning these awards. Ceremonies will take place on May 22 at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva; May 29 at Onondaga Community College in Syracuse; and May 30 at Binghamton University in Vestal.
