Troop 11476 Write Books and Earn Bronze Award

In May Junior Girl Scout Troop 11476 of Blaine, Minn., completed their Bronze Award project by illustrating and writing book sets, which the troop presented to the Kindergarten students at Johnsville Elementary.

The project began last fall when the girls met with Mrs. Parent, one of the Kindergarten teachers, to compile a list of topics suitable for Kindergarten students. The troop organized itself into three patrols, and each patrol selected a topic from the list, wrote the books themselves, and had them produced by an educational publisher. The book topics are Animals, The Alphabet, and Friends.

The troop is a fifth grade troop and felt that this would be a great way to give back to the school that they have attended for the last six years.
