Girl Scouts-Dakota Horizons congratulates Norah Foreman of Fergus Falls, MN for earning the Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award to be achieved in Girl Scouts.
Norah earned her Gold Award with her Giving Back to the Prairie Project. For this project, her goal was to help boost the local Trumpeter Swan population and to inspire conservation efforts in others. To accomplish this, Norah built and installed a floating nest platform for Trumpeter Swans at the Prairie Wetlands Learning Center in Fergus Falls. She also created an educational video about her project and the history of the Minnesota Trumpeter Swan conservation efforts.
Her accomplishments reflect leadership, citizenship, and foundational skills built through Girl Scouts. “Girl Scouts has been a part of my life for many years, and I believe it has profoundly impacted my life. I formed lifelong friendships and I have had so many truly amazing experiences that never would have happened had it not been for Girl Scouts,” Norah said.
Norah is currently a freshman at Montana State University. She is working toward a degree in conservation biology and ecology. She hopes to one day work to protect endangered plant and animal species. Norah will receive her award at the council’s Honoring Excellence recognition event to be held on June 10, 2023.
