Hilliard students Mary Carson and Alexandra Domrose recently received the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
To earn the award, Carson conducted a science camp for girls, introducing third- and fourth-grade girls to several fields of science and highlighted some of the jobs the girls could pursue.
Domrose focused on the issue of girls lacking self-confidence due to concern about their appearance. Her event taught the participants about skin, hair and nail care techniques and exercises to keep their minds and bodies healthy.
Some universities and colleges offer scholarships unique to Gold Award recipients, and girls who enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces may receive advanced rank in recognition of their achievements.
