Religious Recognition Self-Reporting Tool Now Available
Girls can delve into their personal faith traditions with Religious Recognition. Religious Recognition are programs created by various religious groups to encourage spiritual growth and development, provide religious instruction, and help girls become more active members in their own faith communities. These awards have been created by national religious organizations, and not by the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. Because spirituality is an important part of Girl Scouting - as we promise when we say "On my honor, I will try to serve God..." - these recognitions may be worn on the front of the official uniform. Many faiths also have recognitions for adult volunteers.
For more information on these recognitions, visit http://www.praypub.org/, click on the Recognitions/Emblems button on the left of the page, select the "Search By Faith" link and then scroll through the menu to find the appropriate religion. Your house of worship may have a coordinator who works with youth on such programs and can provide assistance.
Now you can report what Religious Recognitions you’ve earned through our self-reporting tool at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ReligiousRecognitions. Girls who report earning the Religious Recognitions will be recognized in the annual Awards Yearbook.
Girls of all grade levels can earn the My Promise, My Faith pin. This pin can be earned once a year and allows girls to strengthen the connection between their faith and the Girl Scout Promise. This national pin is a great way to connect with your community, get inspired, and reinforce what you’ve learned through the Girl Scout Promise. Find out how to earn My Promise, My Faith online or in your Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting book.
