Share Your Girl Scout Story with the World!


What’s your story?

We know you’ve got one! Everyone has a story, but Girl Scouts, in particular, have especially cool ones.

Why is your story different? Because you’ve done things not every girl has. Every-Girl-Scout,-Every-Story-Blog-Callout_TellUsYoursYou might have gotten over your fear of heights by climbing a rock wall at camp (or even a mountain!). Perhaps you took a trip to Peru or watched turtles bask in the sand on the Galapagos Islands. Or maybe you stayed close to home, and started a recycling program, painted a mural or created an urban garden in a part of town no one noticed, and now you’ve changed things for a lot of people!

Did you do something cool with your cookie money? Discover new talents you never knew you had? Made lasting friendships? Had a troop leader who inspired you?

Tell us your Girl Scout story, and you could win $50 and a chance to get published in a local news outlet! Plus, the top three winners will be featured on the Girl Scouts of Western Washington blog and promoted in our social media!
