Billings Girl Scout Earns Prestigious Gold Award

Billings, MT— June 7, 2022 — Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming is celebrating its 2022 class of Gold Award Girl Scouts: eight world-changers invested over 640 hours creating a lasting impact on issues important to them.

Gold Award Girl Scouts, like Kendall of Billings, are changing the world today—their ingenuity enables them to meaningfully address some of the most pressing issues facing their communities and the world.

For her Gold Award Project, Kendall tackled the issue of sexual assault by hosting a self-defense workshop for middle and high school girls. At the workshop, girls heard from a guest speaker about her experience with sexual assault and then the attendees learned some hands-on techniques to use if needed. Kendall also created YouTube content, teaching basic self-defense techniques.

The Gold Award is the highest achievement a Girl Scout can earn, available to girls in high school by developing and carrying out lasting solutions to issues in their neighborhoods and beyond. Gold Award Girl Scouts address the root cause of a problem, plan and implement innovative solutions to drive change, and lead a team of people to success. Gold Award Girl Scouts truly are the world changers, rock stars, role models, and real-life heroes we all look up to. They’re excellent candidates for colleges, scholarships, competitive internship programs, and exciting careers.
