Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois Honors 26 Girls Who Earned the Girl Scout Gold Award

Girl Scouts were shining stars during Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois’ (GSSI) All That Glitters Award ceremony on April 9, 2016 at Holiday Inn in Mt. Vernon. Each year, the banquet recognizes Girl Scouts from across southern Illinois who achieve significant accomplishments in community service and leadership. This year, GSSI recognized 26 girls who earned the Girl Scout Gold Award ... the highest award in Girl Scouting. Each Girl Scout Gold Award project requires a suggested minimum of 80 hours of work and only about 5 percent of eligible girls earn this prestigious award.
