Silver Certificate is 2nd highest
Gold Certificate == Eagle
It is such a shame that we see on college applications the question
about Eagle, but never about the Gold certificate.
The requirements for GOLD are substantial and a low
number of young women that go for it. In our town where we typically
get 10 Eagles per year (active CS/BSA programs!) we have only had
4 young ladies achieve either Silver or Gold in the last 5 years.
When it appeared in the local newspaper that they got the Silver award,
they were ostrisized (sp) by their peers...
I am very pleased to see you bring them into the fold!!
BTW, I only have sons but our baby sitter was one of these fine young women
and she took the time to explain it...
