ALBANY, NY (11/05/2013)(readMedia)– Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York is proud to announce that 46 Girl Scouts in grades 6-8 (cadettes) have earned their Silver Awards in 2013. Involving more than 50 hours of work per girl, the Take Action project for the Girl Scout Silver Award is aimed at making the local neighborhood or community better. The project allows girls to understand sustainability as they plan and implement their project. It also incorporates a global dimension, which encourages girls to connect with friends outside of their immediate community, learn how others have solved similar problems, and determine whether the ideas of others can help with their plan. Throughout the award process, girls put the Girl Scout Promise and Law into action. The following Girl Scouts have received their Silver Awards in 2013:
