Each year, these awards are presented to girls who have planned and executed Take Action projects in response to pressing community needs. A Take Action project goes beyond community service and really dives into why a problem exists, how it can be solved, and involves the community. It’s doing something with the community, not just for the community, to solve the problem in a measurable and sustainable way. In the process, girls gain skills in leadership, project planning, time management and budgeting, plus confidence that lasts a lifetime. With a supportive environment, girls can do anything!
