Our oceans need your help!

You may have seen microplastics around, these tiny plastics are everywhere on our beaches and are very harmful to the environment and local animals.

Aloha! This is a GSH Silver Award project by Dorothy S. and Ambreelee W. who were first-year Cadettes with Girl Scouts of Hawai'i in 2021. Dorothy started Girl Scouts as a first-year Daisy in Arizona and Amberlee started as a first-year Daisy in Texas. They both moved to Hawaii with their military families and joined a troop in the Kolekole Service Unit. While brainstorming ideas for their Silver Award Project, Amberlee and Dorothy wanted to create something that would let them honor members of the military, bring their love of learning to life and pay tribute to the legacy and history of the people living in the amazing state of Hawaii. Order these patches from our online shop  or visit our Oahu Council office to pick up a few when you're here for a visit!

The Honor Troop program provides leaders and girls with a tool to create a quality program that will aid in the retention of girls in their troop. Leaders should discuss with the girls and adults in their troop the requirements to be an Honor Troop and set troop goals and schedules using the Honor Troop program requirements. Troops should use the GSLE as a guideline when planning their calendar. Honor Troop applications will be accepted on an annual basis from May 1 – September 30.
