What is your groups artwork about?
Girl Scout Troop 214 of the Kentucky Wilderness Road Council is a small multi-level troop that serves the community of Frakes, KY in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Since the Juniors of Troop 214 were using their quilt panel as part of the requirement to earn the “Power of Team” Badge in their Girl Scout Agent of Change Journey, we decided to have a separate panel to let our four Brownies participate in the Dream Rocket Project. The Brownies decided on ways that they see themselves helping the community in the future.
*Kaitlyn chose to the theme of helping veterans
*Skylar chose the theme of keeping our waterways free from oil and other containments
*Cassie chose the theme of keeping the community beautiful by picking up litter
*Riley chose the theme of helping endangered species.
They used acrylic craft paint to make a scene on each individual panel. Riley’s mom, Leigh’ Ann; then
put the individual panels onto b1ue star background panel and added the felt start with “GS 214”
written on it.
This was an excellent project which allowed these young girls to think about different ways they could help the community.
What else could the IFC do?
“Something to do with agriculture or the Appalachian Mountain region.”
