Scout designs game to test environmental knowledge

December 2, 2012 

Emily Fennell of Raleigh has earned the Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.

For her Gold project, Emily created a game called “The Wheel of Environmental Knowledge,” where participants spun a wheel, landed on a category, answered an environmental science question and won a prize. Her aim was to teach adults and children about reducing pollution and fossil fuel consumption.

Emily, the daughter of Tim Fennell and Susan Fennell Sumner, is a senior at Broughton High School and a member of Troop 1770, led by her mother and Janet Littlejohn.
