Three Florissant Girl Scouts Among Girl Scout Gold Award Winners
The Girl Scout Gold Award is a national award, a personal challenge and the highest award that a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador may choose to pursue.
Earning The Girl Scout Gold Award requires a suggested 80 hours of planning and implementing a challenging, large-scale project that is innovative, engages others and has a lasting impact on its targeted community with an emphasis on sustainability. Since 1916, the Girl Scout Gold Award has represented excellence and leadership for girls everywhere.
Emily Bublitz’s desire to help children who were victims of abuse inspired her to work with the St. Louis Crisis Nursery for her Girl Scout Gold Award project.
Working with her thespian troupe at school, she created a video to help get kids interested in theatre. She also created several puppets that display different emotions so the children at St. Louis Crisis Nursery would have a productive, interactive way to express themselves.
Audrey Corbin’s Gold Award project, Veterans’ History Project, perpetuates the previously untold stories of veterans from each military branch.
She drew up a list of 20 questions to ask and, along with her team, recorded the interviews on video. Her interview subjects included family friends and residents of the Missouri Veterans Home.
Camille Palmer used her previous experience working with the St. Louis Crisis Nursery to create her project, Clothing O’Rama. It met an ongoing need for children’s clothing and volunteers to help families in crisis.
She toured one of the locations where clothing would be delivered and created flyers and announcements to advertise and generate community interest in Clothing O’Rama. She held a kick-off clothing drive at her church and other drives took place at Crisis Nursery campuses. Weekly, Camille visited both locations to collect clothing from the bins, counted them and logged them into a spreadsheet.
