G.I.R.L. 2020 National Internship Opportunity for Girl Scouts in Grades 8-10

Every three years, Girl Scouts from across our Movement come together to make the most important decisions about Girl Scouting, and for a weekend of life-changing leadership experiences and fun! Girl Scouts’ 55th National Council Session and G.I.R.L. 2020 will take place in October 2020 in Orlando, Florida. Through inspiring activities and influential speakers, this event will provide thousands of Girl Scouts with the tools to empower themselves and to lead change in their communities.

G.I.R.L. 2020 will be planned by a team of 25 Girl Scouts called the G-TEAM. Members of this team will guide the overall direction of G.I.R.L. 2020 and have the opportunity to participate in field-specific internships in areas such as marketing, event production, governance, logistics, and more. The G-TEAM will spend two years planning for G. I.R.L. 2020, including in-person planning sessions in Orlando, Florida and New York City (all expenses paid by Girl Scouts). At the event in Orlando, the G-TEAM will be both the behind-the-scenes and on-the-stage leaders for this major event.

All Girl Scouts who are currently in grades 8–10 are eligible to apply. The application opens October 19, 2018 and closes November 19 at midnight eastern time.

Spread the word to Girl Scout Cadettes and Seniors for this national internship opportunity!

Girl Scouts take over Fiske Planetarium

Submitted by Rebecca “Zap” Lankford

Broomfield

Troop 3572 of Broomfield hosted a scouts only event on Sunday, Oct. 29 at CU Boulder’s Fiske Planetarium. With the help of Claire, the presenter, and Spencer, the pilot, girls were shown a number of constellations and nebulae, went flying by the International Space Station, learned how to find the North Star, and floated in Saturn’s rings. The planetarium was almost full with 195 scouts and family members present. The ooohs, aaahhhs, and general excitement about space made for an exhilarating afternoon. The visit to the planetarium fulfills some of the requirements for badges for Cadettes and Seniors. Great job, girls!
