March 12 is also the Girl Scout Birthday! On this day in 1912,
Juliette "Daisy" Gordon Low assembled a group of eighteen
girls from Savannah, Georgia for the first ever Girl Scout meeting.
Wear your Girl Scout uniform to school to celebrate your Girl Scout
sisterhood. Today, over 3.2 million girls and adults are active
Girl Scout members, and over 50 million women are Girl Scout alumnae.
In honor of the Girl Scout Birthday, take a moment to recognize and
celebrate all that Girl Scouts of the USA has done for local
communities across the country!
Participate in the Wear It Share It Social Media Contest. You
showed your Girl Scout spirit and wore your uniform to school, now
have a parent or guardian share a photo with us on social media for a
chance to win cool Girl Scout Week prizes. Photos must be shared
between 8 am and 8 pm on this day and prizes will be distributed by
random draw. For more info visit our Facebook page.
Throw a birthday party for Girl Scouts! Celebrate with birthday
cake, party games, and more. Invite your sister Girl Scouts and
friends who are not yet Girl Scouts. Ask all of your guests to bring a
birthday gift to donate to a local charity.
