Girl Scout Bronze Award: Intro and Example

With a large number of posts focused on The Girl Scout Gold Award, let's take a look at a different award - The Girl Scout Bronze Award. What is it? The Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. Another fun fact about the Bronze Award from the GSUSA Website states that:
"The Girl Scout Bronze Award was created by a troop of Junior Girl Scouts from an individual council and introduced at Girl Scouts of the
USA's 2001 National
Meeting of Presidents and
Executive Directors in
Savannah, Georgia."
Cool! That falls right in line with the Girl Led way of thought and practice. For a better understanding of what it actually takes to receive a Bronze Award, direct yourself here. In the meantime, check out a story in Massachusetts's Ashland TAB about Ashland Girl Scout Troop 72370, who supplied Franklin Park Zoo in Boston with a new collection of toys and puzzles to keep the animals' homes stimulating and interesting.
