Girl Scouts and Girl Scout volunteers are some of the most inspiring people in the world, and we want to share their tales of awesome journeys, acts of service, challenges conquered, and so much more!
Submit your Girl Scout story below and you might be featured on our website, social media, or blog! Plus, you can earn a totally awesome patch to show everyone that you’re a storyteller.
Not sure where to begin? Follow the tips and tricks below to ensure you give us the information we need to share your adventures with our community, our council, and beyond!
Tell us more, tell us more!
We want to know everything about your story. The easiest way to make sure you don’t forget any of the important details is to think of the 5 W’s: who, what, when, where, and why. Easy, peasy!
Let others help tell your story!
Include your own and others’ direct quotes in your submission! Instead of writing “We planted a community garden, and it’s great,” maybe say, “We planted a garden, and here’s what the mayor had to say about the project [insert quote from Mayor about how awesome your troop is here].” See what we mean? Words are powerful!
Show and tell!
When we see pictures of you doing awesome things, we get the warm and fuzzies! Include photos that help tell your story. The best photos are clear, obviously communicate what’s happening, and present Girl Scouts in action. Check these boxes and… click! You’ll have a picture-perfect story!
Passion, not perfection!
Your story doesn’t have to be perfectly polished. If you are excited about your adventures, service, and Girl Scout journey, then you’re already halfway to the best story. Because to inspire others, you have to be inspired yourself.
By submitting your stories and photos here, you are granting permission to GSCTX to use them in our publicity materials. Please only submit photos including Girl Scouts whose photos may be used publicly. We do not use youth’s surnames in public-facing content unless specifically granted permission to do so.
