GSSI Recognizes 73 Girls with the Girl Scout Silver Award at All that Glitters

Girl Scouts were shining stars during Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois’ (GSSI) All That Glitters Award ceremony on March 28, 2015 at Rend Lake Resort in Whittington, Illinois. Each year, the banquet recognizes Girl Scouts from across southern Illinois who achieve significant accomplishments in community service and leadership. This year, GSSI recognized 73 girls who earned the Girl Scout Silver Award ... the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. The Girl Scout Silver Award is symbolic of accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as a girl becomes her best self and builds the world around her. The Girl Scout Silver Award project benefits a girl's community and can be earned as an individual or as part of a group.
