Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas Gold Award recipient Jamese Broadnax and her team will be recognized on Friday, April 22 by the Environmental Protection Agency’s Regional Administrator for outstanding achievement in environmental stewardship. The award-winning project will be on display at the Dallas Arts District Earth Day Fair, Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23.

“Not Dream Girl but GREEN Girl,” was a day-long conservation workshop created to offer hands-on tips and techniques for the community to help enact environmental change in day-to-day lives. Led by Broadnax, the team invited community members to participate in several stations from creating natural beauty products to building herb gardens out of recycled tin cans. Additionally, the troop hosted a speaker from Coca-Cola’s recycle team and recruited several area car dealerships to provide demonstrations on energy efficient cars.
