Join us in congratulating Troop 8983 on becoming Silver Award Girl Scouts! These girls noticed a need at their city's elementary school for safe seating options outside. These Girl Scouts worked with the school teachers, administrators, and the superintendent to give presentations on the need for safe seating and the benefits of providing this. These Girl Scouts then built benches to donate to the school. They learned a ton of skills throughout and were able to fill a need and make a difference in their community.
