Honor will be earned by building picnic tables for Broken Ground School

CONCORD, NH – Girl Scout Juniors Madison Duffy and Quinn Doherty of Troop 10162 in Concord will soon become Bronze Award Girl Scouts, having teamed up to improve their community by building and painting three picnic tables for Broken Ground Elementary School in Concord. They wanted to provide work space for outdoor classrooms and a place to get together during recess to socialize.

Madison said "Quinn and I picked Broken Ground School for our project because they helped us so much. We wanted to give something back to the school.  Although we are moving up to middle school, we hope the teachers and students will still enjoy them next year."

To earn the money for the project, the girls hosted a bake sale and yard sale. Once they submit their project to Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains and are approved, they will be recognized with the Bronze Award.

The Bronze Award is the highest honor available to Girl Scout Juniors, girls in grades 4 and 5. To be recognized with this honor, a pair or team of Girl Scouts spend at least 20 hours building their team, exploring their community, choosing their project, planning it, putting their plan in motion, and spreading the word about their project. By working to make the world a better place, these young Girl Scouts are well on their way to becoming young women of courage, confidence and character.
