Cookies Bosses Hit the Slopes

Morgan S. and Liliana W. became new friends during the 2016-2017 Cookie Sale’s WISP Snow Tubing trip. Ten girls sold a minimum of 2,000 boxes to earn the trip. Liliana was so excited because she set her goal very high and she worked hard to make her dream to snow tube come true. Everyone had a great time and can’t wait to do it again next year!

She is the future, and we can help her build it.

Badge Update

The New Troop Camping Badge Designs

Girls’ Choice
The newest Girls’ Choice Badge designs are in! These new badges are all about Troop Camping and even include the Girl Scout Daisy Level!

Badge requirements will be ready for download by June 15 and in the Council stores by August.

Make Your Own
As you may know, the make your own badge tool is being discontinued.

With the Girls’ Choice badge process now in place, Girl Scouts of the USA will use data from the Make Your Own tool to inform topic options in the future.

What if girls are interested in a topic that does not have a badge associated with it?
If girls are passionate about a topic that is not currently reflected in a badge, we encourage them to explore the topic through other avenues—perhaps a Take Action project or a destination.

When will the design tool shut down?
The design tool for Make Your Own will shut down on June 1, 2017.

When is the last day to place an order?
The last day to place an order for a Make Your Own badge will be June 1, 2017.
