Annamarie Malik (b. May 23, 1999) is a former Nassau County Girl Scout and former member of Troop 2378. In 2015, she received her Gold Award.

Her Girl Scout Gold Award Take Action Project, Literacy in Nature, involved her partnership with Lynbrook’s West End Elementary School to build a multifunctional outdoor space with trees and benches. The space, developed in an empty area of the school property, was designed to serve as both an outdoor classroom and a place for the community to gather. Once the space was created, Annamarie partnered with the school’s Summer Playground program to teach children about the importance of reading and nature in the outdoor classroom.
