We decorated 384 bags!

About our project: Junior Girl Scout Troop 921 from Des Moines, Iowa used this project to earn their Bronze Award in Girl Scouting which is the highest award you can earn as a Junior Girl Scout. They spent 15 plus hours preparing, presenting to Hy-Vee and St. Anthony's School, making and collecting snd returning the bags. The customers at Hy-vee were thrilled to learn that the girl scouts and students are interested in helping to save the earth! They even had a two page article about it in the local newspaper.

About our project: I am a parent of a Kindergarten student, and I am working toward my degree in Special Education. I heard of the program through a professor of mine and decided to ask my son's classroom to participate. Pretty soon, the entire population of Kindergarten students were participating! They had a great time decorating the bags!
