Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Submitted by Mikayla Geeve

I learned about women who are part of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. I researched these three women: Lily Nie, Marion Downs, and Jill Tietjen.

Lily Nie helped Chinese babies from orphans and brought them to America to be adopted. She did this because foreigners could not adopt Chinese children.

Marion Downs was able to change the world by giving babies hearing aids, so that they could learn and read at the same time that other kids did. She did this to help these kids be able to learn, write, and read at the age of about 5-6, instead of waiting to be tested at 9-10. This would be better, since they could have a better understanding of reading and writing.

Jill Tietjen writes books about other women’s successes who changed the world. By writing these books, other women could be inspired to do the same, and do something good for the world.

Overall, I learned that women all over the world can accomplish anything if they set their minds to it, and have a passion of their interest.

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women. – M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Outdoor field trips at Bluff Lake Nature Center

Visit Bluff Lake Nature Center, a beautiful wildlife refuge and outdoor classroom in northeast Denver and for a unique and memorable experience! Environmental educators will guide Girl Scouts through exploration hikes and interactive activities specifically designed to fulfill requirements for a nature-related badge.

Daisies can earn their “EcoLearner” badge as they get first-hand practice protecting nature, or their “Outdoor Art Maker” badge as they create nature-inspired art.

Brownies can earn their “Outdoor Adventurer” badge as they explore the outdoors in a new way, or their “Bugs” badge as they experience the world of insects and spiders.

Juniors can earn their “Animal Habitats” badge as they learn about the places animals call home, or their “Flowers” badge as they enjoy the science and beauty of our native flora.

If you have something else in mind, ask us about customizing a program for your troop!

Field trips are 1-2 hours long, and visitors are welcome to stay and enjoy the site for the rest of the day following the program. Trips are $10 per Girl Scout (unless otherwise noted). There is a minimum of 8 Girl Scouts to schedule a trip. Adult-to-girl ratios for events must be met. There is no charge for adult chaperones or non-participating siblings. A variety of times are available, including afternoons and weekends.

I want to share how fun it was to learn about the women in the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame. Knowing of all the accomplishments and contributions women have, is nothing but rewarding. Knowing that I like other girls (Girl Scout or not) have opportunities and potential to be as successful is many women before us.

NEW Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame and Girl Scout patch program

“The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is excited to partner with Girl Scouts of Colorado to provide girls across the state an opportunity to learn the stories of women who have shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, and creativity. Girl Scouts are future female leaders of Colorado and the Hall of Fame recognizes and preserves the accomplishments of past and present Colorado women.”

  • M.L. Hanson, Founder of the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame

Girl Scouts of Colorado is thrilled to partner with the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame to launch a new patch program for all Girl Scouts in Colorado.

Girl Scouts of all ages can complete at least three of the seven activities listed on the online instructions within 12 months and earn the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame (CWHF) patch. Once activities are completed, troop leader, parent, or guardian should fill out the online notification form and patches will be mailed to an address of their choosing. The first 200 Girl Scouts who complete the program will receive a FREE patch.

All Girl Scouts should take the Girl Scout Internet Safety Pledge before starting their online research.

After your Girl Scout/Girl Scout troop has earned this patch, share your experience on the Girl Scouts of Colorado blog!

Special thanks to M.L. Hanson, Jill Tietjen, Beth Barela, Tiffany Critz, and the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame for developing this patch program for all Girl Scouts in Colorado.
