Troop 1141 from Boone County was recognized March 12 at the 2013 Civic Leadership Awards Banquet, for their excellent community service with the Kids Voting Northern Kentucky** project. These Junior Girl Scouts showed true leadership by taking action to improve their community and were awarded for that action with the Civic Leadership Award. Through this service project, our girls were able to secure eight new Kids Voting locations in Boone County and assisted with counting ballots from these locations as well as the six Public Library locations already established.
Overall, more that 2,500 additional kids had an opportunity to vote in Boone County this year due to the efforts of Troop 1141, and due to their hard work, Troop 1141 was able to achieve their Bronze Awards!
