Be a Friend First

 

Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas is helping teach girls about anti-bullying through the program Be a Friend First (BFF).

 

Statistics show that nationally one-third of girls, ages 12-18, say they have been bullied at school, and 85% of the time when a girl is bullied, no one intervenes. That is why the Girl Scouts has created BFF, which stands for Be a Friend First - a title that was chosen by girls.

The BFF program provides girls with valuable skills to develop healthy relationships to prevent bully behavior, and become peacemakers in their school and communities. A girl's relationship with her peers is critical component of her well-being and ability to be success in school and in life.

Engineers and Architects of the Future

1st place winner & People's Choice Award: Space Invaders Take Dallas

 

Cookie Box Creations, sponsored in part by HKS, teams girls in Northeast Texas with women architects and engineers to turn empty Girl Scout cookie boxes into free-standing structures. The contest is designed for girls interested in architecture or engineering careers to develop critical thinking skills and promote cooperation and team-building.

 

After months of planning, eight teams hot-glued and taped hundreds of empty cookie boxes together, all to the theme of "Out of the World". The structures were on display at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Local community leaders judged the structures and the public was able to cast a vote for their favorite structure for the "People's Choice" award.

 

Winners:

1st place: Space Invaders Take Dallas

2nd place: A Story in the Stars

3rd Place: Girl Scouts Biggest Delivery System

People's Choice: Space Invaders Take Dallas
