Santa Barbara Junior Girl Scouts Partner with CASA to Earn Bronze Award

Santa Barbara's Junior Girl Scout Troop 50636 has received the Girl Scout Bronze Award, the highest award Junior Girl Scouts can earn.

Requirements include earning multiple badges, completing one of the four Girl Scout program goals and completing a Bronze Award service project demonstrating leadership and commitment to community.

The troop partnered with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) to create an activity and reading center. Channeling their love for reading, the girls created a space that will bring joy to the children who use it.

"Our fifth-grade girls worked really hard to earn this honor," parent and leader Michelle Martinich said. "I am so proud of them."

Girl Scout Troop 50636 presented their Bronze Award community service project to district Girl Scout leaders at the Girl Scout Service Unit Meeting in January. A ceremony followed awarding the Bronze pin.

— Adrienne Sciacca is a troop leader for Junior Girl Scout Troop 50636.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
