Seniors and Ambassadors are Invited to Apply
National Girl Innovators
There are Seniors and Ambassadors across the country who who truly stand out and show their dedication to Girl Scouting through their actions and attitude. We want those girls! The members of the National Girl Innovators are exemplary Girl Scouts who share a common interest in making this organization better for their fellow Girl Scouts.
The girl you nominate is organized, completes tasks efficiently, and does not have to be asked twice. She has a finger on the pulse of youth culture and has ideas about how to keep Girl Scouts modern and current. She is a shining star and continuously brings energy and positivity to your troop. She is able to work with adults to communicate the voices of her peers. In other words: she is a girl of the people.
In group settings, she is able to share her opinions without hesitation but recognizes the best moments to sit back and listen. Does she always try to include other girls in order to hear everyone’s opinion? She brings new ideas to the table and challenges other Girl Scouts to broaden their horizons. She constantly keeps everyone up to date on current events and trends. Do you learn from her as much as she learns from you? If you have a girl in mind that embodies the principles of Girl Scouts, nominate for her for this position!
