Financial Fitness Challenge

The Council’s Capital One Financial Fitness Challenge will empower Girl Scouts at all levels to build their money management and business skills through a variety of pathways, including our national badge programs and of course, the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the largest girl-led business in the world. 

Did your girls receive the a FFC patch last year?  Each time they earn a Financial Literacy Badge they can receive a new patch. Each year has a different design!

How can you join the Financial Fitness Challenge?  It’s easy!

1.  Earn at least one of the Financial Literacy Badges or Cookie Business Badges from the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting at your level, and you will gain the skills and knowledge to take control of your finances. 

2. Let us know which badge you earned between October 2014  and July 2015, and we will send you a FREE patch! Fill out this survey:

To win a special rocker for your Service Unit, please submit a story or photo of how your troop completed the Financial Fitness Challenge. Photos can be submitted to

Is there a program booklet?

 6-8 weeks

 Is the patch really free?


What prizes can the girls win?

The winning SU with the highest percentage of girls participating will recieve a special rocker that will go underneath the patch. 

 What if I earn a Financial Literacy AND a Cookie Business Badge?  Will my badges count twice for the prize?

 No, you will only be counted for one badge per year.

 What does the patch look like?

 We are currently finalizing the patch design with Capital One and will put it on this page as soon as we have the final design

 Will the Capital Currency Kits be updated?

Yes, the kits are updated and are ready to be checked out. 

 I'm not from the GSCNC Council, can I recieve a patch?

 Sorry, no, only girls who are registered with the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital may recieve the patches.  This is because the partnership with Capital One Bank is only for girls in GSCNC.
