Thirteen Girls Earn Girl Scouts Highest Honor
ALBANY, NY (05/08/2014)(readMedia)-- For 2014, 13 members of Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York have earned Girl Scouts' highest honor, the Gold Award. Open only to girls in high school, this prestigious award challenges girls to change the world-or at least their corner of it-and be eligible for college scholarships, too. By the time a Girl Scout puts the final touches on her seven-step project, she will have solved a community problem-not only in the short term, but for years into the future. The public is invited to share in the celebration of the accomplishments of these young women by attending the recognition luncheon on Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 12pm to 2pm at Longfellows Restaurant in Saratoga Springs, NY. Tickets are $25 per person. The event will feature short project summaries by each girl and keynote speaker Michelle Dinsmore, Vice President, Overit Media, herself a Gold Award Recipient. To purchase tickets, please contact 518.489.8110 x 408 or purchase online.
