Badges are here to stay. GSUSA is currently working to produce new badges for Girl Scout Brownies through Ambassadors. Girl Scout Daisies will continue to earn the Promise Center and Petals. New badges will be released in the forthcoming The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting, which will include badge offerings, handbook sections covering traditions and history, an awards log, and much more! The new badges are designed to be complementary to the Girl Scout Leadership Program. They have been planned to help all Girl Scouts develop the three Keys to Leadership: Discover, Connect, and Take Action. They will also help girls build skills on specific topics.
Among the badge offerings will be seven "Legacy Badges" for Girl Scout Brownies through Ambassadors, based on traditions and activities that have been in existence since Girl Scouts beginning: Artist, Athlete, Citizen, Cook, First Aid, Naturalist, and Girl Scout Way. Badge activities will be progressive, so girls can build on skills they've learned at each level. For instance, when they earn the Cook Badge as Girl Scout Brownies, they'll add to their experience when they earn the Cook Badge as Girl Scout Juniors, and all the way up to Ambassadors. We are very excited about all the new program resources that GSUSA has developed. We will let you know as soon as they become available to us. In the meantime, please plan your spring awards carefully. Supplies of current Try-Its, Badges, and Interest Project Awards in our shops will begin to sell down. Remember that we will help you find any of these items if our supplies run low. Please call the shops if you have questions or concerns.
