Silver Creek girl wins award from Scouts
Amanda Roth of Silver Creek is one of 56 Girl Scouts who took action to improve their local, national, and global communities while earning Girl Scouts’ Gold Award.
Roth, a member of Troop 20163, earned the Gold Award for her project, “Roaring 20s Fundraiser for Premature Babies at Mercy Hospital.” She was the only Chautauqua County Girl Scout honored with a Gold Award.
The Girl Scout Gold Award project should fulfill a need within a girl’s community (whether local or global) and create change that has the potential to be on-going or sustainable. Eighty hours hours of community service are involved in the project. Completion of the Gold Award also qualifies the Girl Scout for special scholarship opportunities and she can enlist in the military at a higher starting pay grade.
