Girl Scouts across the US will be celebrating National Girl Scout Week March 11-17, 2018.
On March 12, 1912, Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in Savannah Georgia. Now, more than 106 years later, Girl Scouts is still providing an all-girl environment where young women become confident leaders. Awesome, right? That’s why we’re not only celebrating Girl Scout Day (March 12) – but all week long!
Here are some ways girls can show their pride during Girl Scout Week:
Monday, March 12 | Girl Scouts' 106th Birthday!
Wear It: Wear your Girl Scout uniform to school today.
Show it: Decorate your lunchroom tables with Girl Scout table-toppers you make at a troop meeting. Keep them up all week!
Tuesday, March 13 | Go-Getter Day
Wear It: Take this quiz to find out your G.I.R.L. letter, and wear your color with pride!
Show It: Teach your classmates a Girl Scouts song.
Wednesday, March 14 | Innovator Day
Wear It: What kind of innovator will you be? Dress like what you want to be when you grow up.
Show it: Show and Tell! Stand up in front of your class and talk about your uniform, or your favorite patch or badge. When you’re done, pass out some homemade SWAPs.
Thursday, March 15 | Risk-Taker Day
Wear It: Camp Gear!
Show It: Ask if you can help make the school announcements. You can even talk about Girl Scout Week!
Friday, March 16 | Leader Day
Wear It: Troop t-shirts or fun Girl Scouts gear.
Show It: Gather friends and classmates to do a human knot during recess.
Other great ideas:
- Host a 106th birthday party for Girl Scouts after school. Pass out invitations to your friends and classmates a few days early so they can plan ahead. Milk and cookies? Yes please!
- Do a good turn daily – it is the Girl Scout slogan after all. Random acts of kindness make your world (and school) a better place!
- Challenge everyone in your troop to find a girl at school to come to your next meeting.
