Now that the girls have earned their Promise Center, how do you physically give them to the girls? Every Troop has their own policy on this. Some will wait every couple of months for an award ceremony. Others will hand them out the day they are earned. Some Troops attach them to a certificate, while others come up with a unique way to present them every time. It is always important that the girls understand why they are receiving the award and the ceremony below can help with that, as well as telling the parents why the girls earned them.
