Are you an outgoing person who would like to inform others about why Girl Scouting is important to you? Then submit your application to be a Girl Scout Press Rep! Girl Scout Press Reps can be girls or adults, who enjoy public speaking or writing and would like to represent the council.

Press reps will hone their writing skills and learn about different kinds of media by participating in It's Your Story- Tell It! Journey-based activities. Press reps will be required to write at least three articles during the year about Girl Scout activities for possible publication. As part of the 100th Anniversary, press reps are encouraged to attend the anniversary celebrations and submit photos, videos, or articles.

Parents, it is very important to note that the majority of representation for the council will be internal to the Girl Scout community - through our website, blogs and newsletters.

To apply, submit the following application by September 15. Applications will be reviewed and confirmations sent by September 30. There will be a Press Rep Workshop in Montgomery and Mobile. A snack will be provided at both.
• Montgomery Workshop: October 17, 2011 from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.
• Mobile Workshop: October 18, 2011 from 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.

You can submit applications to: communications@girlscoutssa.org or the Mobile or Montgomery Service Centers.

Do you know about Girl Scout Journeys?  They are cool ways for Girl Scouts to learn about leadership and relationships, helping the environment, and working to create an ideal world.  It's an adventure, with awards along the way. 

The Journey Books guide you through all sorts of ideas for activities that reflect the major focus of the Journey.  It's great fun -- give it a try!

Where can you find exciting new badges, the 100th Anniversary handbook, information on bridging and Bronze/Silver/Gold Awards, and much more all in one place? In The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, of course! There is a Girl's Guide for each level of Girl Scouts from Daisies to Ambassadors.

The Girl's Guide features robust skill-building badge activities, updated and new awards, information on Girl Scout history and traditions, and -- most of all -- lots of fun!

Introducing the Newest Journey Series

  

Available in December 2010, the "It's Your Story--Tell It!" leadership journey series uses a storytelling theme in a fun way for you to better understand yourself and your potential.

 

On this journey, an emphasis is also placed on media literacy and creative expression. All along the journey, you'll have opportunities to engage in a variety of arts, including performing, visual, culinary, and new media, to tell your story and take action to make the world a better place.

 

Check out the grade level titles and themes:

 

Daisy: 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals!

Daisies learn just how much they can care for animals and for themselves--and just how good that makes them feel.

 

Brownie: A World of Girls

Stories teach Brownies clues about how they can create positive change in the world--change that affects girls.

 

Junior: aMUSE

Juniors learn just how many roles are open to them in the world and the possibilities those roles open for them.

 

Cadette: MEdia

Cadettes look for the ME in media and learn how they can shape media--for themselves, their community and the world.

 

Senior: MISSION: SISTERHOOD!

Seniors learn how widening their network broadens their world, and benefits the world as well.

 

Ambassador: BLISS: Live It! Give It!

Ambassadors learn to dream big, now and for their future, and begin their legacy as leaders who help others achieve their dreams too.

Girl Scouts of the USA launched a national campaign with the girl-centered journey, It's Your Planet--Love It!, that includes eye-catching, interactive activities and games and information that we know you will explore and love.
