Join us for an Evening
of "artVenture!"


Omaha Event Next Friday

Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska is pleased to host our 9th Annual artVenture. Join us on Friday, March 23 from 7:00-9:30 p.m. at Mammel Hall on the UNO Campus.This spectacular event includes a silent auction featuring the work of local, professional artists, as well as art created by Girl Scouts who collaborated with professionals. All proceeds benefit the Spirit of Nebraska council.


To view a sampling of art from the auction, visit our artVenture gallery.


The artVenture program provides girls with a unique opportunity to explore their creative side and showcase their art at Friday's public auction event. artVenture promotes arts education. Working side-by-side with professional artists, girls conceptualize and complete a piece of art in the medium of their choice. This year, more than 580 girls in the Omaha area participated in this Girl Scout program.

Guests will enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres in a festive setting. Tickets are $50.00 per person and can be reserved by calling the Spirit of Nebraska office at (402) 779-8213 or by sending an email. For complete details about all four artVenture events, visit our website.

Happy Birthday Girl Scouts!


This was quite a special Girl Scout Week with our 100th birthday on Monday, March 12. Girl Scouts everywhere celebrated our centennial from a sunrise ceremony in Savannah, where it all began, to a sunset celebration in San Diego. Girls in many locations joined in the Girl Scout Promise and Law and many special celebrations were planned. 


Here are just a few of the many events around the country:

  • Girl Scouts in Greater New York joined a flash mob around the Flatiron Building in Midtown Manhattan.   
  • Girl Scouts in Arizona lunched with the governor while girls in Sacramento, California, gathered to receive resolutions from both the California Senate and Assembly. 
  • In Nebraska, Girl Scouts celebrated by breaking ground for a new outdoor education center in Lincoln, and by running an online fundraising campaign, attempting to raise $100,000 for girls in one day.
  • Girls from Texas Oklahoma Plains gathered for fun at Six Flags Over Texas.
  • And, the Juliette Low Flame of Friendship that has been traveling throughout Eastern Oklahoma lit a 100-hour campfire, tended by girls and adults, to serve as the backdrop for a council-wide webcast.  

As we celebrate the achievements of the Girl Scout Movement over the past 100 years, we will remain focused on our girls and the core values that Juliette Gordon Low instilled in Girl Scouting all those years ago.  During Girl Scout Week and every day, all of you in Girl Scouting bring our Movement to life for millions of girls.  You, along with our girls, truly make the world a better place.


Have a great celebration of 100 wonderful years and keep doing the important work of building girls of courage, confidence and character.
