Girl Scouts: vote NOW for the Girls' Choice badge!

How cool would it be to help choose a badge girls all over the country can earn?
Girl Scouts in GSSJC can make that a reality right now by voting for an outdoor badge that will be added for girls in fall 2015!

At the National Council Session, GSUSA announced four outdoor badges will be added to program in fall 2015 at the Brownie, Junior, Cadette and Senior levels. To determine which badges get added, GSUSA is asking current Girl Scouts to help choose, meaning girls take the lead on deciding which badges will be created! Pretty cool, right?

Here's how it works:

  1. From now through Nov. 30, girls can vote on which content area they're interested in with the outdoor category, including outdoor recreation, outdoor environment and outdoor survival.
  2. Once GSUSA receives a majority vote on the content area, girls will vote again Dec. 1 - 31 on the actual badge topic, such as hiking, camping or trail blazing, based on their grade level in the coming year.
  3. The 2015 girls' choice badges will be announced on March 12, 2015.

Ready to take action? With parent supervision or permission, head over to GSUSA's poll to pick which type of badge you'd like to earn!

We can't wait to see what you choose!
