The end of the Wonders of Water journey is reached when the girls earn the WOW! Award that represents the lasting change they have brought to their community. They earn this award through discussion of their SHARE efforts — they can read some of the water promises guests made, show slides of the meeting, or create charts and other visual aids that describe how their outreach impacted the community. Encourage the girls to discuss individual participation and how each girl contributed to the overall project. It is important that the girls recognize the value of individual AND teamwork in the completion of their journey.
In this grand finale, the girls can take pride in the leadership they have shown throughout their journey and in how their work relates to Girl Scout Law.
One of the many benefits of taking a Brownie journey is the sense of accomplishment and confidence the girls feel after learning, growing and sharing their skills and education with others. A great lesson to take from this is that the journey never really ends — learning and growth can continue for a lifetime and so can leadership and advocacy for change!
