Spring and the closing of the school year is a very busy time for everybody, including the Girl Scouts. Many girls are in the process of finishing awards and want to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to making their community a better place. Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama is very proud of all of these young ladies and want to see them complete their awards successfully within the required time frame. Please keep the following deadlines in mind:
· Bronze Awards must be completed and all paperwork submitted to the council before September 30 of the girl's 7th grade year
· Silver awards must be completed and approved by the council before September 30 of the 10th grade year
· Gold Awards must be completed and approved by the council before September 30 of the calendar year the girl graduates or turns 18.
Although we do not approve Bronze Awards, girls are required to submit them to the council. Please make sure that the girls fill out their planners completely in their own words.
Please keep in mind that Silver awards must be approved by the council before awarding them. Gold awards must be approved by a committee and the council before planning the awards ceremony. The council asks that paperwork on these awards be submitted two months ahead of the awards ceremony. This is to leave ample time in case the girl has to revise or make additions to her project. Should this present a problem, please contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz for advice at 800-239-6636, ext: 1202.
