Girl Scouts in the fast lane

On April 29, 2019, more than 60 Girl Scouts, from Daisies to Cadettes, gathered in Aurora to race their very own derby car at the annual Race Like a G.I.R.L. Powder Puff Derby put on by Cadette Troop 71. The girls designed and decorated their cars ahead of time in their own style. Some girls took advantage of the experience to learn the science behind car design to earn badges or compliment a Journey.

While at the event, girls voted on which cars were their favorites in design and decoration. There were some very creative girls and we look forward to their innovations in the future. Girls also got to play games, sing songs, and make S.W.A.P.S.

It was a fun and exciting night full of good sportsmanship and creativity. Congratulations to all the go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders! Hope to see you next year!
