For the month of August, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada will be collecting back to school supplies for Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth. Girls will receive a patch for donating at least two items.
Bring all items to the Council Shop during regular business hours August 1-30, 2012. A list of needed supplies can be found at girlscoutsnv.org. For more information, contact Toni Carey at email@example.com.
When you go for the Bronze Award, you represent what Girl Scouts can achieve in their communities. And, of course, you want to do that in a way that's fun for you - and for everyone else involved, too! Earning the Girl Scout Bronze Award involves the time to complete a Journey, and the a suggested minimum of 20 hours building your team, exploring your community, choosing your project, planning it, putting your plan in motion, and spreading the word about your project.
As you can tell, this Girl Scout Bronze Award adventure is big - in fact, this award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As you and your team plan and complete your project, you'll develop more confidence, meet new people, and have the kind of fun that happens when you work with other Girl Scouts to make a difference.
To get started, refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting.
