Media Girls Team Requirements

  • Be a Girl Scout registered for the current membership year (this program will span across two Girl Scout membership years, e.g., from January 2021 to January 2022).
  • Attend team meetings.
  • Attend media training.
  • Submit at least four pieces of coverage throughout the year. 
    1. Your coverage should include two major Girl Scout events, one non-Girl Scout topic that is relevant to Girl Scouts, and one personal interest piece. 
    2. Your pieces should be multimedia for inclusion across our platforms—think about a video or photos to accompany a written article.
    3. You must quote at least one source in your pieces.
    4. Each event will have a submission deadline, typically about one week after the event, to ensure timely reporting. 


Note: each Media Girl must have a parent or responsible adult who is a Girl Scout member
 available to participate with them and commit to helping to:

  • Share your media initiatives on social media.
  • Bring you to Girl Scout or press events as needed.
