  • A Gold Award Project


    Madison Mintz of Ontario wanted to make sure kids wouldn't get lost on the cross country trail at her school so she devised a plan that would help her earn the Girl Scout Gold Award!

    She worked with a Wayne Central High School technology teacher who helped her design the arrows that would be used on 30 signs at the high school's cross country practices, meets and invitationals.

    Madison says the goal of the signs was to help students of all abilities easily find their way through the trail independently, without getting lost or needing an aide.

    "I am happy about my project because I helped kids who ran this trail for cross country," Madison said.
