Two local teens are among the 25 Girl Scouts from across Colorado who have earned the distinction of Gold Award Girl Scout, the highest honor in Girl Scouting

The award culminates with a community action project led by the Girl Scout, who is in ninth to 12th grade. She builds a team to work with the larger community to meet a need.

-- Cheyanne Bridges from Colorado Springs attends Liberty High School and partnered with the Pikes Peak Humane Society to support its animal medical fund by providing a sustainable source of donations from her school. The program involves recycling and donating. Students’ empty aluminum cans are placed in the collection bins placed throughout the school. Volunteers from the local animal shelter pick up and transport the cans for revenue. She also created a program guide, educational posters and morning announcements to develop and implement the program.

-- Makayla Kocher from Monument, attends the Colorado Springs Christian School. She created an art program for nursing home residents, including developing a resource book of painting and craft activities. She also held classes for all levels of care -- skilled nursing, independent and assisted living.

 The focus of a Gold Award project is identifying and researching a community issue the Girl Scout is passionate about, developing a plan to address it in cooperation with her team and community members, establishing a global connection with others and providing sustainability for the project.
