Elisabeth Di Carmine is a former Nassau County Girl Scout, former member of Troop 2188 and a 2015 Gold Award Recipient.

In 2015, Liz received her Gold Award. Her Girl Scout Gold Award Take Action Project, Understanding Others Opinions, served to teach middle school students the art of compromise. Through research, Liz found different cooperative games that students could play during their physical education classes to practice compromising. With the help of her own physical education teacher, she was able to carry out the activities with younger students. Elisabeth worked to create an atmosphere where difference of opinion would be one of acceptance and acknowledgment. The end result of Liz’s project was posted on YouTube for others to use as learning and teaching tools. She also wrote an accompanying article for her school newspaper entitled “The Meaning of Compromise.”
