Legacy Badges: Girl Scout Way
Girl Scouts of the USA is turning 100 this month. As a Girl Scout Senior, you might feel like life is a balancing act. On one hand, you're holding tight to the comforts of home and what's familiar - and on the other, you're excited to open yourself up to the possibilities in the larger world. In this badge, you'll share the Girl Scout way in your environment and bring together generations of Girl Scouts. Use the imagination and inspiration that comes with this unique moment in your life to carry Girl Scouting forward - and perhaps find some grounding for the future in the traditions of the past.
The Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting can help you explore Senior Girl Scout Ways by following these 5 steps:
- Explore Girl Scout music
- Help younger Girl Scouts celebrate a special day
- Spread sisterhood through the Girl Scout Law
- Leave your environment better than you found it
- Enjoy Girl Scout traditions
When you have earned this badge, you'll know how to use the Girl Scout ways and traditions to make the world a better place. Get started on your Girl Scout Way badge today - refer to your Girl's Guide to Girl Scouting for complete instructions and activities.

|Congratulations Troop 138!|
The Girls Speak Out! contest gives you a chance to make your own Public Service Announcement (PSA) about what's important to you. If you're the top vote getter, your idea will be made into Girl Scouts' next PSA, professionally produced and all!
The first theme (The next 100 years...) ended in December 2011. The winner was actually a troop from right here in Southern Nevada! View their winning submission here.
The new theme is "we only have one planet". Make a PSA that asks others to go "green." Let people know what changes they can make - big or small - that add up to keep us all safe and healthy. Entries are due April 30, 2012. Voting will close May 15, 2012.
