Earn a special cybersecurity patch

Calling all Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors! Here’s your chance to earn a special cybersecurity patch from Girl Scouts of the USA.

Step One

Choose the cybersecurity activity appropriate for your Girl Scout level as listed in this PDF:

CybersecurityPatch_FacilitatorGuide

These activities are from the Daisy, Brownie, and Junior cybersecurity badges. If you choose to swap out another activity, we highly recommend that you use one from Badge 1: Cybersecurity Basics, since that badge teaches foundational concepts that are built on in badges 2 and 3.

Step Two

Complete the activity and take lots of photos/videos.

Step Three

Share your story and photos from the activity using the Share Your Stories form: www.gscoblog.org/share 

Be sure to include what you learned about cybersecurity and why it is so important, along with any plans you might have to earn another STEM or cybersecurity badge.

Once your story and photos have been received, public relations director AnneMarie Harper will contact you regarding the number of patches you need and where they should be mailed. Patches will be distributed on a first come, first-serve basis.

I have been a member of both Girl Scouts and The First Tee since kindergarten. I’m not a great golfer, but I love the sport. I’ve been on my high school golf team for the past two years. I have a lot of fun at practice and at the tournaments with my teammates. I’ve had one moment of glory…I did a hole-in-one at a high school tournament this spring! I would like to have other girls try the sport and see if it’s something they would like to do. Golf is a life-long sport and an amazing skill. There are many opportunities open to girls that play golf. The First Tee of Denver offers classes for all skill levels and they have leadership and scholarship opportunities for older girls. I’ve been fortunate to go to two national leadership conferences sponsored by The First Tee. Take a risk, try something new and come have a good time.

Gold Award Girl Scout helps Brownies bridge to Juniors

Submitted by Chris Goodman

Northern & Northeastern CO

Boulder

2017 Gold Award Girl Scout Rose Goodman took a break from her busy life as a college freshman to help local Girl Scouts bridge from Girl Scout Brownies to Juniors.

Rose’s mom writes:

College can be overwhelming and present a tunnel vision of what reality is – it centers around one’s dorm, classes, and college athletic and social activities. What Girl Scouts continues to offer my daughter, is a connection to something greater and more vast than what the typical freshman in college experiences. By being invited by younger troops (and having activities work with both schedules), she experiences so much more and sees her value and contribution can make an impact on the lives and the direction of others.

Shy Girl Scout shines in Fall Product Program

Submitted by Anna Lahr

My oldest daughter is a Girl Scout Brownie. She is super shy (dx spectrum when really young), but she launched her Fall Product Program storefront with her own scripted audio for the emails, sent them out herself, designed a graphic for the store, and recorded the marketing video to upload. Because she didn’t want her face on camera, she created the cutest skit with a toy, complete with set! I’m amazed at her creativity and problem solving. She’s always been technologically adept, but Girl Scouts is helping her overcome her anxiety about talking to people AND learn marketing skills!
