What did you do for your Gold Award project?

I did pet education nights to educate people about what it means to take care of a pet and not just to own a pet.

Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?

I love animals, and I have had many pets. But it saddens me to think that animals are neglected and abused because people don’t understand what it takes to take care of them.

How did your Gold Award project make a difference?

My project made a difference because it educated people about pets and what it takes to take care of them. It has taught people how to be responsible pet owners.

What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?

I gained leadership skills while earning my Gold Award. I gained leadership skills because I learned that in order to get something done you have to take charge. I also gained the skill of speaking in front of an audience. I am typically terrified to speak in front of an audience, but my Gold Award has made me gain confidence.

What will you most remember about your Gold Award project?

I will remember most not to procrastinate. I procrastinated a lot during my award and I didn’t enjoy having to rush at the end.

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

My Gold Award will help me in the future because it has taught my not to procrastinate and has helped me learn how to speak in front of an audience.

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

The Gold Award is important to my Girl Scout experience because it has taught me that although being in a group is great you have to take charge sometimes and have your voice heard.

    This sounds like a great project, but I would like more info. How many “pet education nights” did she do? Where were they held? How many people attended? How was info presented—lecture? Demonstration? Power point??? What kind of research was done???


    • Amanda Kalina, Director of Public Relations, Girl Scouts of Colorado says:

      Hi Marilyn. We ask the girls to submit information on their projects to be included on the blog. We hope they will provide all the necessary details to help you understand what they did. Sometimes that is not the case. As much as we would love to track down the details, we just don’t have the time to do so. But maybe the Girl Scout will see this blog and help answer your questions. I’m sure all this information was collected in her paperwork and in her presentations to the committee. All of our Gold Awardees do such a great job with their projects! Thanks!
