They say age is just a number, but we think we look good at 106 years old! Our birthday on March 12 marks the day that Juliette Gordon Low started the first Girl Scout troop in 1912, and it kicks-off our weekday Girl Scout Spirit Week campaign. This year Girl Scout Week will be held March 11-17, 2018, and we cannot wait to celebrate all things G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) for the sixth year!
Wondering how you can join in on the celebrations and unleash your inner G.I.R.L.? Look no further! We will be offering daily spirit activities that commemorate the Girl Scout Birthday and highlight what it means to be a Girl Scout in the world today. Juliette Gordon Low started our Movement to create girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place—this is the perfect time to show how you display these characteristics as a Girl Scout and as a girl-leader in your community!
Participate in the activities below as an individual or as a troop and don’t forget to share your photos, comments, and achievements with us on our council Facebook page. We’ll be giving away prizes and council gift cards all week long!
