2019 EngineerGirl Writing Contest

Due Friday, February 1, 2019

Write a story that celebrates engineering design and problem solving.

The EngineerGirl writing contest is, for the first time, asking students to submit works of creative fiction.

We want stories about women and girls saving the day with their wits, skill, and whatever resources they can find to solve the problem. Maybe they are working alone, maybe they are part of an elite team. Maybe they just find themselves in an unusual situation that requires some innovative thinking.

We want stories that inspire EngineerGirl readers to think, “I want to be able to do that” or “I can do that.”

Levels: Brownies, Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors

Girltopia Journey Series for Seniors

February 10, February 24: 

Girl Scout Seniors know the world is not ideal. This journey is their chance to imagine a perfect world—for girls. They’re invited to create their vision as an art project—in any medium they choose. Then they’ll take action to make their vision a reality. Leaders, after all, are visionaries! Completing a Senior Journey is a prerequisite for the Gold Award. An essential component of a Take Action Project is that the girls take it out to the community. The final steps of the Sisterhood Award Take Action project will be completed outside the workshop series.

Sunday afternoons Jan-6, Jan 13, Feb 10, Feb 24 2019

Registration deadline is Friday, Dec. 14, 2018.
