2017 National Young Women of Distinction – Rajvi Ranka

Girl Scouts of the USA


For her Gold Award, Rajvi, 18, from Girl Scouts of Northern California, developed soil moisture sensors and readers to help farmers conserve water and use less groundwater. The sensors are planted into the soil; they allow farmers to read and determine the moisture level in the soil. Based on Rajvi’s technology, farmers on average saved 25 percent of their monthly water use and were able to better sustain their businesses during the California drought. Each year, Girl Scouts of the USA honors ten Girl Scouts as National Young Women of Distinction, selected from the thousands of exceptional young women in grades 9–12 who earn their Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest achievement in Girl Scouting.
