Awards in the Daisy Garden
AWARDS IN THE DAISY GARDEN
Like all Girl Scout journeys, this one focuses on the leadership philosophy of girls
(themselves and their values),
(caring and teaming), and
(to improve their communities and the world). For Girl Scout Daisies, the best way to experience this leadership philosophy is by practicing the Girl Scout Law. So the journey?s three awards, which tie directly to the garden theme, recognize girls? progress in applying the Law to their lives.
Watering Can Award
This first award represents girls being ?responsible for what I say and do.? Girls earn the award by caring for their mini-garden and beginning to understand how the Promise and Law play out in their daily lives. The watering can, a source of nourishment in a garden, also serves as a dual symbol: The girls nurture their mini-garden while they nurture themselves by learning the Promise and Law. (Session 3 is an ideal time for girls to earn this award.) 10
