    Congratulations to the eight Badgerland Girl Scouts earning Gold!

    Girl Scouts of Wisconsin – Badgerland Council recently honored eight girls who earned the prestigious Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest national award a Girl Scout can earn. The Gold Award recognizes girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through take-action projects that have sustainable impact in their communities and beyond.

    The Girl Scouts were presented the Gold Award during a recognition ceremony held in Oregon, Wisconsin in March. "I am honored to congratulate these remarkable Girl Scouts," said Marci Henderson, CEO of Girl Scouts of Wisconsin – Badgerland Council. "Girl Scouts who earn the Gold Award are young women of extraordinary achievement. They are well-prepared to become leaders in our communities."  The eight Badgerland Council Gold Award recipients join the ranks of an elite group of outstanding young women. Nationwide, less than 5 percent of Girl Scouts achieve this prestigious award. Their hard work and dedication reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set them apart and will prove invaluable throughout life.
