Troop 53406 Untangles Barr Lake, Earns Bronze Award

Troop 53406 Untangles Barr Lake, Earns Bronze Award

Congratulations to Troop 53406 from Harper’s Ferry service unit for earning their Bronze Award!

The project received attention from several local news sources, including the Commerce City Sentinel Express, who gave the girls this glowing review (click on the photo above for the direct link):

“Junior Girl Scouts in Troop 53406 spent most of Saturday morning installing the recycling bins with Park Manager Michelle Seubert and were able to earn their bronze award, the highest award a junior girl scout is able to achieve.

Troop Leader Sondra Bourgeois said the troop selected the project because it would make a really big difference in the community. She said the girls did all of the research for the project, contacted the Evergreen Audubon Society about their recycling program, contacted Seubert and made the calls to get the materials donated.

“You hope this is an idea that maybe other troops will catch onto — whether it be Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts — and maybe they’ll take them to other reservoirs here in this area that I know have the same issue with a lot of the fishing line that’s been discarded,” Bourgeois said.

Leader Reina Sterling said the girls were able to connect with the project because they’ve done a “water journey” at Barr Lake in the past where they learned a lot about the lake, the water and how it affects the community. She said the troop, which is based out of Turnberry Elementary School, was able to make a personal connection because the water that’s used in their homes comes from Barr Lake.

Junior Abby Taugner said on a previous visit to Barr Lake she saw a duck with fishing line tangled around its feet and hanging out of its mouth.

Junior Lydia Jimmerson said she’s happy to earn the bronze award and that she likes the project because wildlife won’t get tangled up anymore. Junior Jerray Sterling also liked the project for that reason.

“I liked that we were helping the community so no more animals and birds and ducks and stuff like that would die because of the fishing line,” Sterling said.

Seubert said now that people have a place to put their fishing line they’ll be less likely to leave it on the ground. She said often times they’ll find a goose or duck with fishing line wrapped around their legs or their wings which could injure them forever and sometimes even kill them.

“A lot of times we’ll go out and there’s fishing line everywhere and its a danger to wildlife as well as to people,” she said. “(This project is) going to help make the area look nice and then also protect the wildlife.”

We at GSCO want to give an extra special THANK YOU to leaders Sandra Bourgeouis and Reina Sterling for the extended hard work and support that made this huge project a reality. And to the girls- YOU ROCK! Thank you for making such a big difference in your community. We are very proud of your accomplishments!

As always, please let us know if your troop has a special story to share!

Bronze, Silver and Gold Celebrated at Boulder Highest Awards Ceremony

[slideshow]

(More photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gscolorado/sets/72157644118952800/ )

More than a hundred Girl Scout family and friends gathered in Boulder on May 4 to honor Colorado Girl Scouts who earned one of Girl Scouts Highest Awards, the Bronze, Silver or Gold Award.

Six 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. during Sunday’s ceremony, emceed by Annie Davis, a 2013 Gold Awardee from Boulder.

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.

Emily Calzolari, Caitlyn Danielle Fitch, Ailee C. Rowe, Rowan Alaina Seabolt, Alexa Jo Stringer and Monica Teagan Weller spent a few minutes describing their Gold Award projects and how working toward Gold impacted their lives.

Emily, of Longmont, provided helmets for the Longmont Ice Pavilion and educated Learn-to-Skate parents and participants of the dangers of skating.

Caitlyn, from Northglenn, taught self-defense classes for girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 18 to promote the value of confidence in everyday life.

Ailee, of Westminster, designed and instituted a program in the local homeless shelter system to stimulate brain activity when the kids were not at school.

Rowan, from Westminster, created a summer horse camp program for children in the community who might not have the resources to have such an experience to explore the world around them and develop their passions.

Alexa, of Lafayette, wrote a curriculum and ran a counseling group for middle-school aged girls to raise self-esteem.

Monica, from Westminster, planned and participated in monthly events alongside Rotary Youth International Exchange students to help them make friends and experience all of the fun and culture of Colorado.

In addition at the ceremony, Curtis Stringer (Gold Awardee Alexa’s father) was presented with one of GSUSA’s top volunteer awards, The Honor Pin, for his outstanding work as a cookie volunteer. The award recognizes an individual’s exemplary service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) which has had measurable impact on two or more geographic areas of service, allowing the council to reach and surpass its mission-delivery goals.

The ceremony culminated with a bridging ceremony for all of the Girl Scouts present who were “bridging” or progressing to the next level of Girl Scouting.

We are immensely proud of these inspiring young leaders in our community.

Girl Scout Gold Award Project: Dottie Deane, Littleton, “Bird Houses for the Sacred Heart Retreat House”

Regis Jesuit High School
Bird Houses for the Sacred Heart Retreat House

What did you do for your Gold Award project?

I researched Colorado Birds and built 16 birdhouses for the Sacred Heart Retreat House in Sedalia. I also built a Purple Martin House that is 16 feet in the air.

Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?

Sacred Heart Retreat House is a beautiful area and was in need of bird houses so visitors could enjoy the native birds that live on or near the property.

How did your Gold Award project make a difference?

Provide homes for Colorado birds and allow visitors to enjoy the colorful species that inhabit the Sedalia area.

What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?

Project management, painting, woodworking, pipe fitting and time management.

What will you most remember about your Gold Award project?

Finally seeing the Purple Martin House hoisted up in the air.

How will earning your Gold Award help you in your future?

I developed skills that will stay with me forever. Such things as woodworking, painting, working with adults and other scouts, budgeting and planning.

Why do you feel the Gold Award is an important part of your Girl Scout experience?

It was the culmination of all my years in as a Girl Scout. I loved being able to add lasting beauty to a place as special as the retreat house.

Girl Scout Gold Award Project: Morgan Hays, Evergreen, “Base Camp Geosphere”

 

Morgan Hays

Evergreen Senior High School
Base Camp Geosphere

What did you do for your Gold Award project?

I completed my project at Mt. Evans Outdoor Lab School in Jefferson County when it was brought to my attention that the school was lacking a classroom for the geosphere (rocks and soil) part of the curriculum. After my initial evaluation, I decided that building an outdoor classroom at Base Camp Geosphere was the perfect project to complete and submit for consideration to attain my Girl Scout Gold Award. Base Camp Geosphere is the first learning step in the journey of geology and hike through time, therefore, I decided the best way to present all of the information and solve the problem was to create an outdoor classroom. The classroom now serves 3,000+ students a year.

Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?

I pursued my Gold Award because I felt that it was important to make a difference and to have a goal of what that difference would be and how it would help others.

How did your Gold Award project make a difference?

My Gold Project helped teach 6th graders about the geologic world around them and is helping them better understand what is going on in the rocks outside of their town.

What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?

I gained the skills of patience, leadership, organization and perseverance.

What will you most remember about your Gold Award project?

I will remember the fact that my classroom gets used by an immense amount of middle schoolers each year. I will also remember my love for outdoor lab and the new memories I got to add to my collection.

How will earning your Gold Award help you in your future?

My main goal is to get into the Coast Guard Academy or the Naval Academy. This project helps greatly because I now have a leg up on the competition and it shows great commitment. It will also help when I am getting a job later because of all the wonderful qualities and people who are produced from the completion of this project.

Why do you feel the Gold Award is an important part of your Girl Scout experience?

The Gold Award is incredibly important. From the time you are a Girl Scout Daisy to the time you are about to start your project, Girl Scouts is teaching you the necessary skills for the successful completion of the Gold Award. Once you complete your project you see how now instead of you looking up to your leaders, they are now looking up to you.
