Our troop has three Cadette’s currently working on their Silver Awards – the highest award that a Cadette can earn. The project itself is meant to “make the world a better place”. Cadette’s need to also plan for sustainability in their projects. They also have to measure the project impact on their community – knowing their goals, target audience, and developing success indicators. Projects of this nature require different lengths of time from start to finish, however it is suggested that each Silver Award project include a minimum of 50 hours to complete. Keep in mind that quality is more important that quantity.
