More than two hundred Girl Scout families and friends gathered in Colorado Springs on May 15, 2015 to honor Girl Scouts who earned one of Girl Scouts Highest Awards, the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

14 girls were presented with the Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout in grades 9-12 can earn. Girls who have earned this award demonstrate extraordinary leadership through a project that makes a difference in their community. Several Bronze Award honorees (the highest award a girl in grades 4-5 can earn) and Silver Award honorees (the highest award a girl in 6th – 8th grade can earn) also were presented with their awards.

Girl Scouts of Colorado President and CEO Stephanie Foote said the girls’ spirit and motivation inspires us all to think of the needs of others and take action to make the world a better place.

“You are strong role models for our community and our world,” she said.

Foote also presented the Johanna Farrar Girl Scout Memorial Scholarship to Kelsey Quick. Kelsey, from Salida, Colo., is the first-ever recipient of this scholarship, which was started in 2015. The Johanna Farrar Girl Scout Memorial Scholarship fund provides annual $500 cash prizes to any and all Gold Award recipients from Chaffee County, Colo. To earn her Gold Award, Kelsey created a website and other materials to help children who have been cyberbullied. She is also the first Girl Scout from Salida to earn the Gold Award since at least 2000. You can read more about her project here.

Other Gold Award honorees also described their projects and how working toward Gold impacted their lives.
