Meet National Gold Award Girl Scout Julia Trujillo

Girl Scouts of Colorado has two special opportunities for you to hear directly from 2020 National Gold Award Girl Scout Julia Trujillo. As a National Gold Award Girl Scout, Julia is one of one of ten teen activists honored by Girl Scouts of the USA. As a senior at Arvada West High School, Julia tackled the lack of accessibility to menstrual products in Colorado public schools and the stigma of periods. She partnered with Colorado State Representative Brianna Titone and led the high school’s Intersectional Feminist Club to create a legislative action committee, which introduced a bill to end period poverty and stigma, and advocated for students in Title One schools. Julia was also selected to be GSUSA’s girl activist and representative at the United Nation’s Girls Speak Out Girl’s Rights Townhall earlier in October.

  • Watch this special interview with Julia and Girl Scouts of Colorado CEO Leanna Clark.
  • Julia also participated in GSCO’s “Meet an Expert” webinar series on October 27, 2020. Girl Scouts of all ages and adults joined from across Colorado to learn about Julia’s journey to the Gold Award, becoming a National Gold Award Girl Scout, and her advice for other girls. Missed it?
