Troop #2921 Earns the Girl Scout Bronze Award for Tree-Planting Project




When rennovations at the Washington County Courthouse required trees to be removed, Troop #2921 from Nashville put their helping hands to action. They researched the importance of trees, using what they learned to write a letter to city officials offering to help. The troop even donated funds they raised during the recent Girl Scout Cookie Program. Their dedication to the project helped them earn the Girl Scout Bronze Award - the highest award Girl Scout Juniors can earn. Great work, girls!
