Girl Scouts Dakota Horizons congratulates Emily Gilbertson of Jamestown, ND for earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award to be achieved in Girl Scouts.
Emily earned her Gold Award with her A Better Vision for Everyone Project. With sights set on increasing awareness around blindness and low vision, Emily hosted a day camp for Girl Scouts. She partnered with a North Dakota School of the Blind team member to give those in attendance a better understanding of what it means to be blind or have low vision. Emily showed the girls how to write with braille and different tools available to help people with low vision.
Emily will receive her award at the council’s Honoring Excellence recognition event to be held on June 10, 2023.
