Girl Scouting’s highest awards—the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Awards—are a girl’s chance to make a lasting difference in the world. Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is honored to present Lexi Marcotte with the Girl Scout Silver Award, the highest recognition for achievement in Girl Scouting for girls in grades 6-8.
This award recognizes girls who demonstrate—individually or as a group—extraordinary leadership through sustainable and measurable Take Action projects that address important community needs.
Through a leadership project, Lexi Marcotte wanted to address the issue of the Woodbine Community wanting horseshoe pits for their neighborhood.
As a part of her Silver Award project, she worked with the Woodbine HOA to build Horseshoe pits. The Woodbine community wanted to have regulation horseshoe pits, so she took on the task. She chose the safest style to make sure the neighborhood could have fun without getting hurt. She bought the materials and began cutting and sanding the wood right away so that it was right as soon as she was ready to install the horseshoe pits. The horseshoe pits were then installed and the neighborhood can now play horseshoes whenever they want.
Lexi Marcotte used her strength, talent, and skills and put her plan into action to earn the Silver Award while taking a leadership role.
Lexi Marcotte is the daughter of Jamie and Matt Marcotte from Seneca Valley School District. As a Girl Scout member for 8 years she was supported in her Silver Award efforts by Tim Richart and the Woodbine HOA.
