Princeton Girl Scout Junior Troop 71829’s award-winning project “Sidewalk Murals for our Community” has been unveiled at Community Park North.

The troop, consisting of twelve fifth-grade girls, created four sidewalk murals adorned with imagery of bees donning Girl Scout uniforms. The murals, featuring uplifting messages inspired by the Girl Scout Law, are located between Pettoranello Gardens and the Princeton First Aid & Rescue Squad.

The troop received the Girl Scouts Bronze Award for the project. The award represents the pinnacle of achievement for Girl Scout Juniors and recognizes Troop 71829’s dedication and creativity.

Under the guidance of troop leaders Alexia Salinas and Bethany Sierra, the girls created the project with the aim of fostering positive change in their community.

With the support of the Princeton Recreation Department, and generous paint material donations from Home Depot stores in West Windsor, South Brunswick, and Ewing, the girls made their vision a reality.

Local artist Carolyn Canik lent her expertise to the project, working closely with the girls to translate their ideas into inspiring messages.
