Girl Scouts Council's Own Awards Wikia

Our Community is a Brownie Try-It from the Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama Council.

Objective: By learning about their community, girls will feel connected and understand the value of contributing their time and effort to the community now and in the future.

Guidelines: Complete four of the requirements listed below:


  1. Read or listen to a story about your town or community and the people who live there. Find out some things that make your town unique and special.
2. Invite a senior citizen to tell you about the community as they were growing up there.
3.Take a field trip to a place that is important to your community’s history. Visit a museum, old cemetery, historic building or house, the oldest school or a park. Explore its history.
4. Help with a community service project.
5. Do something the way it was done 100 years ago. For example, try making butter, milking a cow, ride in a buggy or a horse, carry water from a well, make soap, or wash clothes on a scrub board.
6. Play with toys that were used by children 100 years ago or play games or dress in clothing that they would have worn.
7. Make paper dolls and act out skits of events that happened in your community.
8. Make a scrapbook about your community or look at one from the library or historical society. Locate sites that are still used today.
9. Visit City Hall; learn about the history of your community.
10. Find out about the family whose name is on a building or park.
