2016 Frontier Girls Scholarship Award Winners

Award, Diamond/Grey Diamond Award, or both the WOW! and Gem award.  Very few girls have ever accomplished this feat, but this year we had more entries then ever before.  I am so impressed with the hard work these girls put in and the impact that they have made on their communities and troops.  We take a lot of different things into consideration when deciding who to award the scholarships

Beautiful Make a Difference!

Beth Henderson, an auxiliary Butterfly member of Troop #109 living in Wales, recently did her Make a Difference Award by coordinating the decor for a formal dinner for a Church function.  She designed, drew and coloured the place mats, coasters, name plates and serviette/napkin rings.  She lead 4 other people by having them laminate the mats and coasters; arrange for matching tablecloths of specific sizes; set up the tables; set up the silverware and china, and select matching serviettes (napkins).  The result is stunning, as shown in the photographs! It never ceases to amaze me the creative ways that girls
