On Sept. 24, Katrina Hammond presented one of her Gold Award Project murals to the Wayne Township Food Pantry in West Chicago.

Hammond is a high school student from St. Charles who just completed her Girl Scout Gold Award Project that focuses on biliteracy in her community.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

She created eight bilingual game bags that practiced topics such as weather, colors, shapes, clothing and school supplies in both Spanish and English.

These game bags for kindergarten through second-grade students promote dual language education.

Two murals were created to motivate and empower people. The murals were written in a variety of different languages including Arabic, Hindi, Spanish, Polish, Lithuanian, and English.

These murals are now on display at the Wayne Township Food Pantry in West Chicago and Elizabeth Ide School in Darien.
