Sharing a story from the girl, troop, and volunteer lens helps bring
Girl Scouts to life! Share with us (and the world) how you’re
experiencing Girl Scouts - whether you’re accomplishing an award,
completing a service project, exploring the outdoors, or earning
badges with your troop.
When you tell your Girl Scout story, GSACPC and GSUSA can amplify it
in media outreach, publications, blogs, social media, etc. To submit
your story, provide a few sentences of what it’s highlighting, at
least one photo (unless submitting a video), and your troop’s or IGM’s
basic details including name, troop number, and city. You can submit
an entry via email or by
completing the following form.
Guidelines/Tips for Photo and Videos Submissions
Girl Scouts are the star! Be sure to center the story and supporting
visuals around the Girl Scouts experience. For example, is she camping
for the first time? Showcase her in action setting up a tent or the
emotion of packing her camp gear! Aim for visuals that help tell the
story as opposed to photos that capture a moment of it.
Be sure that photo(s) are clear and represent Girl Scouts! If
submitting a group photo, please identify everyone in the photo. If
submitting a video, make sure it's clear, captures the audio you
intended, and is 1-3 minutes in length.
Photo Tip: Use close-up photos on your materials. Focus on
the action and ensure girls’ diverse personalities and experiences
are depicted, with an array of emotions (avoid using only posed
smile shots); and in active, strong, and adventurous ways as much as
possible (avoid posed, standing still shots unless critical to the content).
