SIDNEY -- Audrey Splichal was recently honored with the The Girl Scout Gold Award.

She was notified in March of her receiving the Girl Scouts' highest achievement. 

"This prestigious award challenges girls to change the world -- or at least their own corner of it. For a Girl Scout to receive her Gold Award, it is a great honor and accomplishment," Erin Finken, Gold Award Coordinator, said in her letter to Splichal.

This honor is given to 10 Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors annually whose Gold Award projects demonstrated extraordinary leadership, had a measurable and sustainable impact, and addressed a local challenge related to a national and/or global issue.

Splichal’s project was to support the Fort Sidney Museum in community engagement and digitalizing the museum’s inventory. She volunteered more than 100 hours to complete her project with the help of the museum board and volunteers.

She is a senior at Sidney High School, selected as student of the month earlier this year.

Splichal is also involved in Sidney State of Minds, National Honor Society, Skills USA, Distributive Education Clubs of America, Future Career and Community Leaders of America, and Girl Scouts. She also attended Girls State and was elected as Major.

Outside of school and extracurricular she enjoys helping the community including Helping Hands food packing for Haiti, Extreme Faith youth choir, the Table of Grace and the Sidney Oktoberfest doing various activities all through her parish at Saint Patrick’s Church. She is currently employed at Walmart as a cashier.
She also goes to the funeral home a few days a week to gain experience in forensics. She enjoys camping and being outside.
