Girl Scout Going for Gold Award Gives Back to Her School

LINCOLN, Neb. One Lincoln Girl Scout going for her gold award has chosen a project that gives back to her school.

Meg Rask and several volunteers are taking over the courtyard at Lincoln Southeast High School.

The group has been cleaning, landscaping and planting for several weeks. The end goal for the project is to use the courtyard as an outdoor classroom for the school's Special Education Department.

"I'm good friends with the Special Education program here at school and I think it would be great if we could have an outdoor classroom," Rask said.

"I think it's just really great to see the courtyard be brought to life again and be able to utilize it as an outdoor classroom. A different learning environment than just being indoors so it'll be nice," Special Education teacher Sarah Freitag said.

The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
