Cadet Girl Scouts Princess T. Abellon, 16, Jerrah Mae A. Tupas, 15, and Krizel Jane Ariz, 15, were handed the highest award given by the Girl Scouts of the Philippines during the awarding ceremony on Feb. 5 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

Abellon, a senior high school student of Dauin National High School, implemented a one-year ecological project called Beautification of a Neglected Area in Dauin.

Tupas, a junior high schooler from Antonio B. Alejado Municipal High School, undertook a health project called Help Children Grow at Purok 6 in Magsaysay village; while fellow junior student Ariz from the same school carried out an ecological project on Zero Waste Management in Panubtuban village.

The three awardees were among the 415 Girl Scouts from all over the country who were cited for the one-year community projects they initiated in their areas. “These Girl Scouts implemented their projects using their own resources and linkages within their communities without any funding assistance,” said Rosario Rosales, executive director of the GSP Negros Oriental-Siquijor Council.

She said that GSP will only extend consultation and technical assistance to the Girl Scout throughout the one-year implementation period of the project, after which the projects are turned over to the barangay for them to continue implementing.

The Chief Girl Scout Medal Scheme highlights the Girl Scout’s role in nation building. “We serve as catalysts for development in the community,” said Rosales.
