2019 Honoring Excellence


Honoring Excellence Web Feature_560x220

Girl Scouts recently joined together to celebrate a year of outstanding work, achievement, and experiences at Honoring Excellence. 200 Juniors received the Bronze Award and 65 Cadettes received the Silver Award to honor the work they did this year to solve important problems and make a positive impact on their communities through service. 23 Girl Scouts earned additional honors for their dedication to providing long term service in their community. Graduating Girl Scouts were thanked for the time they have dedicated over the years, and special Girl Scout Scholarships were awarded. Finally, Girl Scouts who went above and beyond to create sustainable change in their community were awarded the Gold Award, the highest award a Girl Scout can achieve.

More council accomplishments and experiences were shared, and Girl Scouts and their families celebrated their achievements with a cake reception. This was a successful, fun, and exciting year for Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois, and we are so excited to see all of the amazing things Girl Scouts continue to do in the future!
