What did you do for your Gold Award project?

For my Gold Award project I created an informational video about Freedom Service Dogs. This organization trains and gives service dogs to people with disabilities or veterans. Here is the final video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWZ_oJamgII.

Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?

I pursued this Gold Award project to improve my skills in video, increase my communication skills, increase my interpersonal relationship skills, and to support a great organization that makes life better for both dogs and people.

How did your Gold Award project make a difference?

My project made a difference by helping me learn new abilities and giving me the confidence to do a project of this scale. Also, this video was posted on social media sites and is helping increase awareness of the importance of service dogs.

What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?

The skills I gained through earning my Gold Award were video and filming skills, communication, organization, patience, how to work with a team, be a leader, and see a project through to completion.

What will you most remember about your Gold Award project?

I will most remember the appreciation and thanks that I received from people who I filmed and people who have viewed the video too.

How will earning your Gold Award help you in your future?

Earning my Gold Award will help me in my future by helping my confidence, ability to possibly get scholarships or jobs, and working in a team environment.

Why do you feel the Gold Award is an important part of your Girl Scout experience?

I feel like the Gold Award is an important part of Girl Scouts because many of my previous Girl Scout skills were incorporated in finishing this project. It also gives me such a feeling of accomplishment and reward that I have enjoyed sharing with people.
