From now on, Our Lady of Fatima School in Wilton will hold a three-day nutrition workshop every year for fourth graders, thanks to Wiltonian and Girl Scout Cecilia Babchak, who designed the workshop for her Gold Award last year.
“The Girl Scout Gold Award is the highest achievement in all of Girl Scouting and it would be compared to the Boy Scout Eagle Scout Award,” Cecilia said.
“Basically, you identify an issue in your community and then develop a take-action project to solve that issue that will carry on for years to come.”
Cecilia interviewed people in Wilton and surrounding towns to find an issue to address for her project.
“I found that an issue was malnutrition in kids,” she said, “and I decided to create a threeday workshop that will be incorporated into the Our Lady of Fatima fourth grade science curriculum.”
