The IP's, Junior Badges, and Brownie Try-Its listed in this document have been retired to make way for updated badge activities and other awards that girls will earn when they begin using The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting (available September 2011). If you plan to work on the badges and patches listed below, please call ahead (800-239-6636) to be sure we either have them in stock or can order them for you. We still have many of these badges and patches in stock, and can likely order them from other councils as well.

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.

 

The Kappa Delta's have announced the badge offerings for this year's event. Since we are late offering these choices, we are extending the registration deadline (with no late fee) until September 30. KD Badge Day is a very popular program where Brownies and Juniors earn two badges and older girls earn one IP. The Junior choices for this year will be: Global Awareness, Healthy Relationships, Car Sense, A Healthier You, Weather Watch, Earth Connections, Finding Your Way, Drawing and Painting, Dance, and Outdoor Cooking. Older girl choices will be: Women's Health, From Stress to Success, Just Jewelry, and Your Own Business. Brownie offerings will be available next week; contact Mary Anne Brutkiewicz, ext. 1202, to find out which badges will be offered.

Matlock, Johnnie Cochran, Clarence Darrow, Perry Mason, John Grisham, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Hilary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth Dole, Barack and Michelle Obama are famous (fictional and real) lawyers.

 

Lawyers have many options over the course of their careers. Besides private practice, they can become a prosecutor, government counsel, corporate in-house counsel, judge, arbitrator, law professor or politician. Legal training is good preparation for many non-legal jobs, such as corporate executive, government administrator, investment banker, entrepreneur or journalist.

 

Girl Scouts in middle school and high school can explore what it takes to be a lawyer with a young, female attorney.  A new series pathway focused on legal careers is starting, and we want girls to shape this group.  June 22, girls will meet to decide:

What activities do the girls want to do?  How often do they want to meet?  How do they want to communicate?  What do they want to call themselves?  Do they want to work on IP's?  Do they want to go on trips?

 

Get your girls involved in this from the ground up by RSVP'ing by June 21 to Molly Smart at extension 1402.

 

When: 4 - 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 22

Where: Volunteer Center, Mobile

Cost: Free

RSVP by: June 21
