Hauppauge Junior Girl Scouts Earn Bronze Award

HAUPPAUGE, NY—Girls in Girl Scout Troops 1687, 1738 and 1765 recently earned their Bronze Award. The Girl Scout Bronze Award recognizes girls who demonstrate—either individually or as a group—extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects that address community needs.  

The troops’ Bronze Award Project consisted of working together to update and beautify the Hauppauge Youth Organization’s sports complex. Through fundraising efforts and community donations, the girls painted picnic tables, parking spaces and doors, constructed planters, created rock gardens, beautified an existing memorial garden and much more.

The girls were recently presented with their Bronze Award at a ceremony held at the Hauppauge Youth Organization Complex. Local officials in attendance included Legislator Tom Cilmi and Salvatore Nicosia, representing Senator Tom Croci. 

“Girl Scouts take a pledge to serve others and help people at all times,” says Yvonne Grant, President & CEO for Girl Scouts of Suffolk County. “The inspiring accomplishments of these young women are a testament to this promise.”

The members of Troop 1687,1738 and 1765 used their strengths, talents, and skills to put their plan into action to earn the Bronze Award, while each taking a leadership role.  They wish to acknowledge the support of their sister scouts, family, friends and the Hauppauge community.

Girl Scouts of Suffolk County is the largest youth-serving agency on Long Island. It serves more than 30,000 girls between the ages of 5 and 17, with the dedicated support of more than 7,000 volunteers. For more information about Girl Scouts, please call 631.543.6622 or visit
