Ridgefield Girl Scouts Lauren Ahern, Alexandra Caruso, Emma Cowles, Ameesha Dugal, Megan Keough, Emma Lee, Michelle Legan, Nina Moss, Elizabeth Sacchi, and Juliana Waite of Ridgefield have earned the Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can earn.
The Girl Scout Gold Award requires Girl Scouts grades nine through 12 to spend at least 80 hours researching issues, assessing community needs and resources, building a team, and making a sustainable impact in the community. A Gold Award recipient’s accomplishments reflect leadership and citizenship skills that set her apart as a community leader. Nationally, only 6 percent of older Girl Scouts earn the Gold Award. Girl Scouts of Connecticut recently honored the 71 Girl Scouts in Connecticut who have achieved this honor on Sunday, June 4.
