GOING ON AT GIRL SCOUT COUNCIL
Fall Product Program is Now Treats & Reads!
Introducing the new name of our Fall Product Program: Treats & Reads!
Exciting activities are ahead for Girl Scouts this Treats & Reads season. As we count down to Go Day, September 26, be on the lookout for our weekly at-home family activities and a “Where in the Council is Sasha the Sloth?” contest on social media, where girls can participate in a mystery prize drawing each week AND have the chance to get their very own giant plush Sasha.
Plus, stay tuned for a girl-focused program in September, where we’ll give tips on how to create their best marketing video (and maybe get a preview of this year’s Treats & Reads rewards)! Get the full details on this year’s program here.
New badges to make the world a better place
Get ready to change the world! Now Girl Scouts can earn 24 new badges that take leadership to the next level. There’s never been a better time for girls to practice ambitious leadership—and there’s no better place to do it than at Girl Scouts.
This year, we’ve added new badges in the categories of:
- STEM Career Exploration
- Automotive Engineering
New Religious Award Resources
While Girl Scouts is a secular organization, we have always encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys via their faiths’ religious recognitions. Check out our new PRAY Virtual Learning Resources, designed to assist parents who may wish to serve as counselors and help guide their children to complete their religious emblem. You can find them under the Faith Emblem Instruction at Home drop-down menu.
FIRST Robotics for Daisies
Your Girl Scout Daisy could be the first to experience FIRST LEGO League’s (FLL) Discover level! Uniquely designed for this age-group, FLL Discover teaches important skills like teamwork while helping participants build confidence through STEM-related games and activities.
For more information on how your Girl Scout can get started, contact Lauren Kornegay Dollar at LKornegayDollar@girlscoutsem.org.
