Honoring Heroes

Submitted by Stephanie Daniels

Westminster

The girls of Troop 68127 in Westminster used their cookie money to send treats to our local hospitals and healthcare heroes. Knowing that many of their classmates have parents who work in healthcare, the girls decided to recognize these amazing people. In turn, they were also able to support a small local business, The Dessert Stand, which  made all of the delicious treats! It was a win-win!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.

The girls did a cookie booth and invited the firefighters who were shopping to check out their cookie booth. They bought two packages of cookies and loved the sales skills the girls learned.

These Girl Scouts also earned the Uniform to Uniform patch! Learn how to earn yours: http://gscoblog.org/2020/01/uniform-to-uniform-patch-for-the-2020-girl-scout-cookie-program/

Register your daughter for “Science in the Summer” day camp, and she will join other Girl Scouts entering grades 1-5 for a week of fun and learning. Each day, campers will explore a different science theme including space, forensics, wildlife identification, and color science. Camp will be held in a park in Westminster from June 1 – June 5, 2020. Limited extended daycare is available.

Visiting science experts will make engaging presentations, including a special presentation on wildlife rehabilitation. On Friday, we will host the young women of United Launch Alliance and launch rockets. Our days will include a lot of hands-on activities so the girls are able to experiment with the information they learn.

In addition to fun science activities, your camper will have the opportunity to learn Girl Scout cooking skills. We’ll be making a hot meal for three of the camp days, and all girls will participate in meal preparation.

This fun week will be rounded out by traditional Girl Scout songs and games. Younger girls will be inspired by the older Girl Scouts working as Program Aides.

Camp is filling up quickly, register your camper soon!

Westminster H.S. culinary students host cooking challenge featuring Girl Scout Cookies

Girl Scouts of Colorado partnered with Christopher Hill, ProStart/culinary arts teacher at Westminster High School, to host a cooking challenge featuring Girl Scout Cookies in February 2020. Students created dishes, which could not be desserts, and competed against each other in small contests with their classmates. On February 19, the winners of the class competitions competed in a final round. Students had one hour to prepare and present their dishes for judging. The winner was Trefoil Shepherd’s Pie (click link for recipe and see below for more recipes)! Students in the engineering department also used their 3D printer to create the trophies for the winners.

Thanks to CBS4/KCNC-TV, Fox31/KDVR-TV, and Colorado Community Media for joining us for the event!
