Pre-registered participants will also receive a FREE ticket to the Bears Women’s Basketball game at 2 p.m. vs. Idaho. Walk-ups and parents are eligible for discounted tickets!

**NEW this year, UNC Athletics has added multiple opportunities for select participants to be part of Bears game day by taking on various roles in sport (i.e. public address announcer, marketing assistant, cheer coach, and many more). This new opportunity focuses on the NGWSD theme, “Lean her forward,” which honors the channels available to both girls and women in sports and the endless potential to succeed.

To reserve your spot, register at uncbears.com/ngwsd. A representative from UNC will follow-up with you to confirm your registration.

The girls of Troop 70720 had a fun evening. They wanted to do a “Chopped”-style competition. There were three teams. Two teams cooked while the third team made a trophy for the winner of each course. Every girl got a chance to make two different items. It was fun seeing their creativity in the food and the trophy that they made.

Cadettes participate in Wreaths Across America

Submitted by Tiffany Baker

Highlands Ranch – Lone Tree

Cadettes from Highlands Ranch – Lone Tree Troop 59 visited with Gold Star mother and Girl Scout alumna Victoria Nevins at Fort Logan National Cemetery during Wreaths Across America on December 15, 2018.  The girls made her a white and gold wreath to pay their respects.  Ms. Nevins’ son, Special Forces Staff Stg. Liam Nevins, recieved a purple heart for a wound he suffered in combat, but refused to return home.  Instead, he stayed and was killed one month before he was to discharge from the military at age 32.

The Wreaths Across America Ceremony is a solemn experience that teaches youth about service to our country, helping others, courage, strength, and community.  This year’s ceremony message was for veterans to share their stories with others.  Our girls were honored to hear Staff Stg. Nevins’ story from his mom, in becoming more aware of the ultimate sacrifices for our freedoms.
