From Girl Scouts of the USA
Girls have spoken! The winning Girls’ Choice badge topic for 2017 is Troop Camping. And, without further ado, we’re pleased to announce . . .
The 2017 Girls’ Choice badge requirements are now available for digital download. What a great way to kick off the summer and build go-get-‘em problem-solvers, encourage challenge-seeking, and expose girls to new experiences as they grow their skills, confidence, and character.
Daisies will get a first taste of the camping fun and excitement in their first-ever Girls’ Choice badge, and then the Brownie Ambassador badges will build on that foundation.
So head on over to the Girl Scout Shop today for your digital downloads; badges and printed requirements will be in council shops by August. They’re chock full of opportunities for her to take the lead like a Girl Scout and unleash her inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™. And we can’t forget all the adventure, fun, and excitement great Girl Scout memories are made of!
And girls, always remember, camp life is the best life!
We’re excited to roll out the new badge requirements for the Girls’ Choice “Art in the Outdoors” badges. Girls were given the choice of two badge designs for their Girl Scout level, and asked to pick their favorite. More than 12,500 girl votes were cast—and the winning badge designs are ready to be earned.

From Girl Scouts of the USA:
In December we announced the second Girls’ Choice badge topic winner—Art in the Outdoors! Now we’re pumped to get to the next step in this awesome process. Ready?
As we gear up to offer girls fun new badges that will allow them to explore their creativity and stretch their imaginations in the beauty and restorative nature of the outdoors, we’re opening the polls up and asking girls to decide what the new badges will look like. We’re so excited, and we know you are too!
So let’s get to it. Now through January 22, girls can vote on their favorite design for the new Art in the Outdoors badges. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Based on their grade level, girls will be shown two design options for the badge they will be able to earn this coming fall. For example, Brownie girls currently in the third grade will vote on designs for the Junior badge.
- Note that because this round of badges is for Brownies through Ambassadors only, Daisies will vote on the Brownie badge.Also note that though girls in the twelfth grade will not technically be able to earn a badge this fall, they can still join the fun and vote on the Ambassador badge!
Remember, Girls’ Choice is all about GIRLS and what they want from their Girl Scout experience—we’re here for them! So adults can vote for fun, but only girl votes will count toward the winner.
Now go forth and encourage every Girl Scout you know to make her voice heard by voting today!
