These financial literacy badges are an opportunity for girls who are serious about increasing cookie sales and completing the Silver Award to gain much needed skills. How will you finance your Silver Award? Do you want to create a much needed program in the community? How much will it cost? Do you charge attendees or offer for free? When doing a LIA (Leadership in Action award) with Brownies will you need supplies? What will you need?
