Top Honors for Girl Scouts
MiCaSa Gold Awards!
Katelyn Kienitz- Little Scorps Library
Katelyn began looking for a project for her Gold Award, she said many kids like those in the program would spend their time playing on their parents’ phones and tablets instead of learning.
“I really like reading a lot, but I noticed a lot of kids haven’t been reading a lot these days,” Katelyn said. “I thought maybe if our preschool had a library, maybe some of them would enjoy reading in the future.” Katelyn teamed up with Lange and librarian Heidi Resnik to put together a library for the preschoolers inside the Camarillo High library. Youth Service America and Disney awarded Katelyn’s project a $500 Disney Be Inspired Grant, which she used to buy books, paint, supplies and cushions for kids to sit on. “It’s a great opportunity for the little ones to learn library etiquette being as little as they are. I am happy we can hold on to much-needed etiquette and read a book.”
Kirsten Dornbos- Animal Expo
The goal of Kristen’s project was to bring awareness to the community on a variety of animal-related topics. She set up a series of educational and informative booths at the Camarillo Animal Shelter. Kirsten organized activities and prizes for young children, but her main goal was “to inform people about pets and all the responsibilities that come with them.”
