Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts is proud to announce that more than 50 Girl Scouts received their Girl Scout Gold Award pin on Wednesday, June 19, at a ceremony at the Marlborough Holiday Inn. The event was attended by family, friends, and Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts CEO Ruth N. Bramson and Board President Elizabeth Stevenson.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can achieve, and it recognizes a service project that fulfills a need within a girl’s community—whether local or global—creates change and becomes ongoing. To earn the award, girls must complete the Silver Award and a minimum of 80 hours of service. The project is more than a good service project—it encompasses organizational, leadership and networking skills. Only approximately 5 percent of all Girl Scouts earn this award each year.
