Six Cadettes from Troops 955 and 150  of Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa researched and created a prosthetic hand device to help a little girl in Georgia who was born without fingers on her right hand.  They were able to craft a device that allowed her to hold a pencil and write for the first time in her life!  

 The Global Innovation Award they are competing for is open to Lego League teams around the world.  The goal is that through on-line votes these girls can earn $ to help with patenting this device they created.  Their project needs your support and the support of Girl Scout troops in your Council.  More votes = greater chance to earn $ for the patent process. 
You can vote daily from home, work, smart phones.  You can vote once per IP address.  This means, if your workplace has a single server and somebody has already voted, it won't register another vote.  The upside to this is that you could potentially vote several times from your smart phones! Forward it home and vote from there, check out the local coffee shop's wifi etc...  Please take the time to vote daily, share their link with others and encourage them to vote as well.

Have you ever looked at the birds in your backyard, maybe even counted them?  Then you are all set to be a citizen-scientist and participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count during F
American Robin -- Humber Bay Park (East) (Toro...

eb 18-21.  All it takes is to spend 15 minutes tallying the different birds in your yard, neighborhood or other location sometime during the days of the Bird Count.  Then go to www.birdcount.org and enter the highest number of each type of bird you saw.

How does this help science?  When lots of people all over the country participate, we get a look at how bird populations change in number and location.  Scientists use this information to monitor bird health and migrations.

This could be a fun activity for a troop meeting, a family, or just time relaxing by yourself in the backyard.  More information  can be found at www.birdcount.org

Are you a Girl Scout, age 13 to 15?  Are you interested in the environment, ecology, wildlife, biology and natural history?  This Destination is for you!

We have a wonderful opportunity for girls to receive scholarship funding for the Wyoming's Wildlife Wonders destination, July 24-30, 2011. A scholarship of $600 will cover 3/4s of the event fee of $898 for girls ages 13-15. The girls will need to cover travel expenses to get to and from the event. Girls must complete the destinations application available on the destinations website http://www.girlscouts.org/forgirls/travel/destinations/event_details.asp?eventid=322.

Wyoming's Wildlife Wonders is a travel opportunity (destination) where Girl Scouts ages 13-15 travel to Wyoming to study the ecology and natural history of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Girl Scouts hike, canoe, and trek through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks. Teens observe wildlife, explore careers that promote sustainable ecosystems, and take action by developing an environmental project to implement back home in their community. Girls across the nation will come together for a week at the Teton Science Schools to learn in an amazing environment about nature, each other and themselves.

Completed application packets are due to Mary Anne Brutkiewicz by February 25.   You can contact her at  800-239-6636 or mbrutkiewicz@girlscoutssa.org

2010_Bulletin_Insert.jpgThe first Girl Scout meeting in the United States was on March 12, 1912. To recognize this special event in Girl Scout history, the week including March 12 is known as Girl Scout week. The Saturday and Sunday of this week are known as Girl Scout Sabbath and Girl Scout Sunday. This week is an opportunity for girls to make a special effort to celebrate Girl Scouts.


Your troop can recognize scouting by asking your religious organization to place the Girl Scout bulletin insert on Girl Scout Sunday or Sabbath. This year Girl Scout Sunday is March 6 and Girl Scout Sabbath is March 12. The inserts are free, but supplies are limited, so put your order in quickly to ensure you have enough for your organization. 


Last year's insert (pictured right) was designed by Cadette Girl Scout Abbie R. of Troop 8184.  The back of the insert will have the Girl Scout Promise and Law, and GSSA contact information.


Order forms can be e-mailed to programintern@girlscoutssa.org, faxed or mailed to either service center. Please order as many bulletins as there are people in your congregation.  The inserts can be put in service unit boxes for the service unit meetings in March or they can be picked up at the council.

Runners in the Thin Mint Sprint will need a drink of water -- and we know just the Girl Scouts to hand it to them: YOU!

Get to the park nice and early at 7 a.m. and fill up water cups, hand them to runners on the course, and cheer them on...the runners really appreciate it!

You will be done by 9:30 a.m., then it's time to enjoy the fun at the Health Expo (arts & crafts, jumpies, and more.).

Ask your troop leader/advisor to contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz at 800.239.6636, ext. 1202 to volunteer to join the fun!
