Amanda -- Body Image 2

gold award centennial logoAmanda, a Girl Scout Ambassador from Hanover, organized an eight-week workshop program on nutrition and fitness. Over 40 girls, ages 5 to 13, participated in the workshops.

Workshop topics included healthy snacking, hydration, media, body image, reading food labels, portion control, self-confidence, sugar and fast food.

Amanda also presented fun ways to be active. She arranged for many fitness instructors to come to the workshops to teach yoga, Zumba, hip hop, POUND Fit, fencing and soccer.

She also created a nutrition and fitness manual containing lesson plans, discussion points and activities. Through organizing this program, Amanda learned perseverance and problem-solving strategies.

We commend Amanda for teaching young girls about these important topics!
