Girl Scouts in the News: February 2011 Archives

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.
