Registration for Girl Scout University is open! Sponsored by the Alpha Phi Omega chapter at the University of Denver, Girl Scout University will take place on April 17, 2021! This provides Girl Scouts the opportunity to earn two badges in one fun-filled morning!

Due to social distancing practices, this year’s event will be held online using the Zoom platform. We will be offering a few different badges for Juniors and Cadettes, who can pick one badge for the first session and another for the second session. Specifically, Juniors can select between Drawing, Staying Fit, and Savvy Shopper. Cadettes can select between Science of Happiness, Comparison Shopping, and Eating For You.

The cost of the event is $7.50 per badge or $15 for the whole morning. This event is a fundraiser for our organization. So, the price of the event includes the cost of badges, shipping (as we will mail the Girl Scouts the badges they earn after the event), and a small donation to Alpha Phi Omega. Registration will close on April 10.

You can register at the following link: http://cglink.me/2fC/r1060299

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
