We are still in need of troops to Adopt a Distinguished Young Woman (formerly known as AJM) June 12-25. This is a special program just for Girl Scouts. We would love to have 50 troops participate in the program this year.  As soon as your troop is assigned a state, your girls can start corresponding with your state contestant. When the Distinguished Young Women arrive, your girls will already have a relationship with your DYW and will be anxiously awaiting her arrival.  
The tentative schedule for Girl Scouts and Distinguished Young Women:
????Arrival ceremony at Airport Sunday, June 12
????Special Girl Scout and Distinguished Young Women party (nominal fee to cover the meal), date TBA
????Girls can visit their young women at the "Meet and Greet" at Bel Air Mall, date TBA
????Community Night Show Wednesday, June 22
The Distinguished Young Women look forward to spending time with their Girl Scouts, therefore it is important that your troop be able to have some representation at all of the listed events in order to adopt.  Please consider the commitment before registering your troop.
The registration deadline has been extended to  to April 15. To register, fill out an Event Registration Form <> , write the girls' top three state choices and send to Mary Anne Brutkiewicz <> .
We will again have the Be Your Best Self Patch program in connection with Distinguished Young Women.  This is a program to develop an understanding of the Distinguished Young Women program while gaining a desire for excellence. It builds self esteem to help one prepare to successfully deal with daily challenges in a way that exemplifies courage, confidence, and character. Please note on your Event Registration Form if your troop will be participating in the program.  We will need to get an accurate count to order patches by May 1.
