Join us in celebrating the world’s largest leadership organization for girls during Girl Scout Week 2020! Girl Scout Week will take place Sunday, March 8th through Saturday, March 14th, and our theme is Rally the Vote in recognition of the Centennial of Suffrage. In Girl Scouts, girls are growing in their civic awareness and are learning to stand up and speak out for what they believe. Our 108th birthday is on March 12th, and we will be celebrating all week with spirit activities on our Facebook page. Girl Scouts can also participate in the Girl Scout Birthday Week patch program.
Learn more about the Centennial of Suffrage celebration by checking out last week’s blog post and get a sneak peak of each spirit week activity below!
Monday, March 9th: Share what you want to be when you grow up AND share a HER-story maker that inspired you to consider this profession.
Tuesday, March 10th: Share a civic engagement project that your troop participated in. This could be visiting a council meeting, a mayor’s office, town hall or a local courthouse or police station. Vote on something (like your next troop activity); help hand out voter registration cards at a community center or event; or visit a local polling place or board of elections.
Wednesday, March 11th: Complete 2 activities from your age level Civics badge. Write letters to a female elected official, judge or police Chief in Celebration of Women’s History Month and the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
