President's Volunteer Service Award

The President's Volunteer Service Award recognizes United States citizens who have achieved the required number of hours of service over a 12-month time period or cumulative hours over the course of a lifetime. To qualify, youth volunteers simply submit a record of their service hours to YSA, and they verify the service and award the PVSA.  Girls may apply the time they spend on a Take Action project, including the Girl Scout Bronze, Silver or Gold Award, toward the Preseident's Volunteer Service Award.  For details, visit http://www.ysa.org/pvsa.

Caitlin Cowan leader for troop 15046 in Minneapolis says, "We'll purchase a large number of Milkweed seed packets from SaveOurMonarchs.org Save and then set up tables at neighborhood festivals this spring to teach people about monarchs and the girls will hand out seed packets."

 

SaveOurMonarchs.org distributes Milkweed seed packets to help to save the Monarch Butterfly from extinction.  Milkweed is the ONLY sustenance that the Monarch caterpillar can consume.  

 

Troop 15046 is working to save monarachs as the project for their Bronze Award.  They are trying to raise awarness and invite other Girl Scout troops to do the same.  For more information or to join them in their campaign contact Caitlin Cowan at 612-385-2331or by email at girlscouttroop15046@gmail.com.
