Get rewarded for helping Girl Scouts grow
The 1-2-3 Grow Your Troop campaign rewards troops with an open-door spirit who welcome new girls by January 15, 2014.
There are valuable merchandise discounts and program rewards. Any Girl Scout troop who has increased their girl membership over last year is automatically enrolled. In addition, all troops who grow by 1, 2, or 3 girl members by January 15 will also be rewarded. Plus we have a “Bonus!” program for troops welcoming 4+ new girl members.
Get started by printing and sending invitations today! Use our templates or use your own ideas:
- “Join My Troop” invite friends to an upcoming troop meeting.
- “Come to an event” invite friends to join you at a council program advertised through our Program Activities and Events Guide. Each girl will receive $5 off the program fee!
If you have questions or just want to share ideas about growing your troop, please contact us.
Help us grow & get $500 for your Service Unit
Girl Scouts of the USA is rewarding the 2 councils in the nation that get the highest % of increase in girls grades K-5 by January 31 with a bonus to support council programming! If Lakes and Pines wins, the service unit (one per Membership Region) that grows their girl membership in grades K-5 by the highest percent over last year will win $500 for local Girl Scout programming.
