Girl Scout Sunday

Mar 11, 2012

Girl Scout Sunday

Girl Scout Sunday occurs during Girl Scout week. on March 11. Girl Scout Week in from March 11th through March 17, 2012.

The purpose of this special day is to emphasize the importance of the Girl Scout Promise:

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God* and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

Girl Scout Sunday provides a time for Girl Scouts to reflect upon the importance of the words, “to serve God”.
My Promise, My Faith
The Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital is excited to celebrate the inaugural year of the GSUSA national faith-based recognition, My Promise, My Faith. This new award gives girls the opportunity to reflect upon the connections between Girl Scouting and their
individual faiths.

Girls can earn this award each year they participate in Girl Scouts.

Here is an outline of the basic steps a girl must follow to complete the award:

1. Pick a line from the Girl Scout Law.
2. Interview a woman in your own or another faith-based community.
3. Find three inspirational quotes by women that fit with that line of the Girl Scout Law.
4. Make something, like a drawing, painting, or poster.
5. Make a commitment to live what you've learned.
**For the complete guidelines to this award, please see the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting.**
