Virginia Beach Girl Scout Earns Silver Award

Virginia Beach Girl Scout Kayla has earned the Girl Scout Silver Award, the second highest honor and award a girl can earn in Girl Scouting.

Ever since Kayla first heard about the Union Mission, an organization that provides food, shelter and care for those in need, she felt that it would be a great organization to help for her Silver Award project. Kayla collected items, including toiletries, clothing and toys, from her friends, family and members of her community to donate to the Union Mission. 

Kayla also used her creativity and talent to make scarves and hats to give to the Union Mission. She even inspired some fellow Girl Scouts to knit items to donate as well. 

“My project impacted my leadership skills by expanding my planning skills, organizational skills and time management,” Kayla said.

The Silver Award requires girls to identify an issue in the community and carry out a Take Action Project to address the matter through leadership work.
