Last month an Area wide celebration was held to recognize girls who achieved the highest awards possible last Guiding year. In Burnaby Mountain district two young women were celebrated for accomplishing the Chief Commissioner’s Gold Award. These dedicated members earned their award through activities in Rangers and as Junior Leaders with younger branches.
The award night is an annual area tradition. It was a lovely celebration. Seen below are the recipients of the Chief Commissioner’s Gold Award with the Bill Reid prints that they received in honour of their accomplishments. Carissa and Ziyana represent Burnaby Mountain district.
The Chief Commissioner’s Gold Award is the highest award a girl member can achieve in Guiding. It recognizes completion of the Ranger program including a cookie campaign challenge and a service project. This award generally takes three years to complete and successful completion of the award also entitles the girl to two additional high school credits.
Way to go Carissa and Ziyana! Your district is very proud of you and we appreciate all that you’ve done for our organization.
