World Thinking Day


World Thinking Day Each year on February 22, World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. World Thinking Day not only gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts of the USA is part of a global community-one of nearly 150 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.


The theme for World Thinking Day 2012 is girls worldwide say "we can save our planet." Your Girl Scout Senior can participate in this global holiday by earning the official award here.

Rock the Dam Registration Now Open  

Rock the Dam with Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada! Join us for a symbolical bridging across Hoover Dam as we honor the past and welcome the next century of Girl Scouting. Rock the Dam, commemorates the historical beginnings of Girl Scouts in Southern Nevada by gathering where it all started in 1932 with 22 girls in Boulder City.


Participants will kick off the celebration in one of ten designated decade areas that reflect an era of Girl Scout history. Girls, alumnae, and volunteers will celebrate 100 years of Girl Scouting by exchanging S.W.A.P.S. they create to represent one of these decades. Click here for more information.

Senior Journey: Sow What?   

 Harvest Award

During this journey, girls have an opportunity to earn the prestigious Girl Scout Senior Harvest Award. The Harvest Award is an important step on the Girl Scout leadership ladder; it signifies that girls understand who they are and what they stand for, and that they care about others, too. It also signifies that they can grasp an issue by the roots and organize a team to work together to sow the seeds of sustainable change. Seniors - to earn the award:
  • Get your leader print going! Here's the path: Identify, and dig into, a food or land issue, tapping some community experts as you go. Maybe you've met growers, gardeners, nutritionists or others in your region and have ideas about challenges they face. Just choose an issue that allows you to use your unique talents and learn something new, too!
  • Capture your vision for change in a Harvest Plan that includes: Your very own "So What?"-your goal, why it matters, how it will benefit both the planet and people. Say it in a way that gets others interested and involved! Show how even simple actions and decisions impact the larger food network.Your project can be big or small, depending on your time and interest. Either way, strive for a sustainable impact. 
  • Now, create change-execute your plan by advocating to influence a food policy or land-use effort (yes, you can!), or by educating and inspiring others to act on a solution you identify.

Share Your Voice We want to know what kind of experiences you want from Girl Scouts! Perhaps more programs focusing on technology and engineering? Maybe meeting more professionals like scientists or world class performers? What about programs that explore healthy living? How about diving into your creative side with writing or story telling? Whatever your passion may be, this is the perfect opportunity to share ideas for future fun and interactive girl programming sessions.
