Girl Scouts Love State Parks Weekend: Cherry Creek State Park and Castlewood Canyon State Park

Submitted by Mackenzie W,

Centennial/Aurora

I’m a Girl Scout Junior in Troop 547! I went to Cherry Creek State Park and Castlewood Canyon State Park! I like to get outdoors and have all summer, taking on a different hike almost once a week! I’ve seen many animals and plants and flowers and there is still so much to see! Hope you had as much fun as I did!

I really love getting outdoors and hiking and visiting as many state parks and national parks as I can!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.

Girl Scout Gold Award Project: The E-waste Recycling Exposé

Submitted by  Safiya D., Girl Scout Gold Award candidate

Metro Denver

Aurora

I have been a Girl Scout for 10 years. Currently, I am working on my Gold Award, which is the highest honor a Girl Scout can earn. The Gold Award focuses on addressing a community-based problem. My project, The E-waste Recycling Exposé, tackles the lack of education regarding technology recycling (e-recycling) in my city of Aurora. I am developing a curriculum for fourth and fifth graders that teaches them what technology recycling is and why it is important. 

When I was researching my project, I was disappointed to learn that in comparison to paper, plastic,  and glass recycling, only 20% of electronics actually get recycled in the United States. I thought that if I could educate kids and get them excited about e-recycling, it might make them think more about actually recycling their old electronics.

My curriculum is comprised of : 

  • An introductory video that shows me taking an old family computer to be recycled
  • A PowerPoint that explains the technology recycling process 
  • A video I created that shows how to take apart a laptop computer and find the recyclable parts
  • Interactive and hands on games that I created for the kids that will make understanding e-recycling fun
  •  Pre and post surveys to evaluate what the participants have learned from the program

In creating my curriculum, I had a few goals in mind. I wanted students to get excited about electronics recycling.  And most importantly, I wanted them to go home and talk to their families about its importance and encourage them to participate in the recycling of their old electronics. If we care about our planet, participating in technology recycling is important. When you look at the statistics, many landfills are filled with electronics and the more we care about this issue, the easier it will become to have a clean Earth.

More about Laura Vetos

Laura Vetos, born and raised in Colorado, grew up as a Girl Scout in Wheat Ridge.  She attended the Air Force Academy until her mom got sick and she dropped out. Instead of giving up on her dreams of serving her country, Laura went to EMT training and became the first female firefighter for Englewood Fire Department.

Over the course of her 28-year career, Laura served her community as a firefighter with specialized training in Confined Spaces and Hazardous Materials, Paramedic, SWAT Medic, and continued to break barriers by becoming a fire lieutenant, fire captain, and acting battalion chief.

Laura retired from firefighting in 2015, but still wanted to serve her community.  She currently works as an ER-based paramedic in Aurora.  She performs many of the same duties as a nurse in an ER.

Laura loves to care for others in a friendly and helpful manner.  She loves Girl Scouts and any group that helps women become their best.  When she is not at work, Laura likes to spend time in the mountains hiking, fishing, riding her bike, and spending time with her family, friends, and dog, Bailey.
