Douglas County High School
What did you do for your Gold Award project?
For my Gold Award project I created a perennial garden for the Douglas County Outdoor Education Center. The reason for the garden is to teach the students about different kinds of plants and what plants are able to grow in different regions.
Why did you pursue this Gold Award project?
I created the perennial garden because I have always loved the outdoors and going to Outdoor Ed was a great experience for me. I decided that when Douglas County opened the Outdoor Education Center that I wanted to help them so that other students could have a great experience just as I did.
What skills did you gain through earning your Gold Award?
While working on my Gold Award I learned the skills of leadership and time management. In the future I can take the skills I acquired and use them to help me be successful.
