On Monday, April 8th, 11 of this year’s 38 Colorado Girl Scout Gold Award recipients from throughout state (yes, even one from Montrose was there) visited the State Capitol in Denver. The Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouts.
The girls had a chance to sit on the floor of the House of Representatives as well as take a tour of the capitol grounds, among other activities. Many of the recipients family members joined them for the visit.
Colorado’s House of Representatives also read information on the floor about this year’s Gold Award recipients during their business of the day on Monday. Additionally Fox 31/CW2 TV out of Denver covered this event for their newscasts and the Girl Scouts of the USA Blog ran information on these events too.
We are so proud of this year’s recipients! Look for more information on the blog and website soon about this year’s projects. (In fact we will be having you vote on your favorite project(s) of 2013!) For a list of this year’s honorees and more information on the Gold Award, visit the press release section of our website.
And to get a sneak peek into this year’s Gold Awardees and their projects, view the video we shot on Monday with interviews with some of this year’s honorees.
