Silver Award Project: “Colorado Strong” Fire Recovery and Prevention

Submitted by Emily Sage

Northern & Northeastern CO


Brianna and Rachel from Troop 71020 started planning their Silver Award project while the Cameron Peak and East Troublesome fires were burning in northern Colorado. This inspired them to help with the fire recovery efforts. First, they designed “Colorado Strong” T-shirts and sweatshirts which they sold to raise funds to support their project. In December, they used some of their money to purchase needed items for the disaster response collection center to help fire victims in need during the holidays. They used to rest of their proceeds to purchase more than 300 trees through the Colorado State University “Restoring Colorado’s Forests” program to assist with spring replanting efforts. To make their project sustainable, Brianna and Rachel developed a troop meeting plan for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors to learn about fire safety and prevention. The meeting plan can be used for virtual or in-person meetings. Their meeting plan is available at:

If you are interested in purchasing a T-shirt or sweatshirt, so Brianna and Rachel can purchase more trees to help with reforestation, please email for more information.
