  • Girl Scouts' Highest Award

    highest award in Girl Scouting

    We are celebrating our 2015 Gold Awardees; girls who have earned the highest award in Girl Scouting by addressing a community need with a sustainable take action project. We profile several at a time, but you can read about all 2015 Gold Award recipients here.

    Joy Yang, Newton, planned several activities and infused fun into learning about—and eating—fruits and vegetables. She organized an event at the local elementary school and presented a fun lesson to children in the aftercare program.

    Faridat Toyin Yusuf, Ashland, created Children’s Book Club to encourage reading and to allow kids to meet others with similar interests. She organized the meetings and led the members in discussions about what they read, allowing the children to express their opinions.

    Hasanat Tobi Yusuf, Ashland, addressed the need for more recreational activities for patients in children’s hospitals. She created workshops for children in her town to make origami crafts and get well cards for patients.

    Abigail Zajac, Medfield, coordinated donations for the Women’s Lunch Place, including cranberries for a holiday meal and toiletries that she hoped would help women served by WLP feel cared for and feminine.
