Council Events

Here at Girl Scouts of Ohio's Heartland we host a varity of special events throughout the year aimed at providing girls and volunteers experiences that not only help them grow as individuals but also create memories that last a lifetime. Below you will find descriptions and dates for these events. The information we provide will change frequently so make sure to check here often. 

State of the Girl

You’re invited! Join us for the virtual State of the Girl 2021 on March 2 from noon-1 p.m. You don’t want to miss this community event that elevates the voices of girls and illuminates the key issues that affect their lives.

This year’s community conversation will feature a panel discussion with:

  • Alesia Gillison, chief engagement officer at Columbus City Schools.
  • Allie DePoy, behavioral health clinical educator at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
  • Brooke Johnson, Gold Award Girl Scout.
  • Ella Basile, Gold Award Girl Scout

These panelists are seeing first-hand the learning losses and struggles with mental health our girls are having during these times. They will share their insights on ways we can support girls through this difficult time.

We hope you will join us in this dynamic conversation with community leaders as we continue to impact girls and build strong, confident women.

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

Event begins at noon

State of the Girl will have no cost to attendees. Registration is open now until Feb. 25. Sponsorship opportunities range from $500-$10,000.

Your participation is an investment in girls of central Ohio. Donations to State of the Girl will help girls gain experiences in leadership, STEM and the outdoors so they can be our leaders of tomorrow.

We are excited for you to join us virtually for State of the Girl 2021, we look forward to resuming the live in-person event next year.
