Girl Scout Monday: Ambassadors Win Scholarships

Girl Scout Ambassadors Kaylynn and Sommer each won a scholarship at the Juneteenth Scholarship Competition at last month! 

Juneteenth is the combination of the words June and nineteenth, and is a time to come together and celebrate the rich cultural history of African Americans in the U.S.

The day celebrates the end of slavery in the United States. It specifically celebrates the state of Texas announcing the abolishment of slavery in 1865, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued in 1863.
