Open to Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors, this team of Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-Takers, and Leaders will be the official girl faces and voices of our council. Girls will receive special media training to be able to report on council and community events and share our stories with the Girl Scout community and the world. 

Media Girls will be called upon to:

Media Girls Team Requirements

  • 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.

    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.
