Girl Scout completes Gold Award project

Last week, Ambassador Girl Scout and Trumbull High School senior Kassie Castaldi implemented her Gold Award project. The Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouts, wherein a Senior or Ambassador level scout designs and leads the execution of a sustainable Take Action project that addresses an issue in her community. Annually, fewer than 6% of eligible scouts earn their Gold Award. For her project, Kassie chose to research, create, and deliver a presentation to eighth grade classes at Madison and Hillcrest aiming to educate them on the benefits of playing a musical instrument and hopefully inspiring them to continue or pick up an instrument when they go on to high school. Additionally, she made a brochure for them to take home, thereby increasing parents' awareness as well. Kassie is currently awaiting official approval and reception of the award.
