Make Girl Scouts Even Better 

Spirit of Nebraska is honored to be one of only ten councils in the nation selected to participate in a study about how Girl Scouting benefits girls. We need your help to make this effort a success by encouraging all the Girl Scouts you know to participate!!


There are two easy steps:

  1. Complete the registration process for the Girl Scout Voices system. (Girls under the age of 13 will need parental/guardian permission which is included as part of the registration.) Click here to complete the registration.  
  2. Later this month, girls complete a brief survey about their experiences. A separate survey invitation will be sent at that time to those girls who have registered.

As a token of appreciation, each girl will get several small, fun, email surprises! For more information, click here.
