Event Spotlight: G.L.O.W.

GSHCC's first annual Girls Leading Our Way (G.L.O.W.) Conference was a great success! G.L.O.W. was designed to bring older Girl Scouts together and give them resources to enhance their leadership skills. On Saturday, May 31, 2014, a total of 46 Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Girl Scouts participated in workshops and discussions where they learned valuable info, such as how to boost public speaking skills and prepare for college, to what it takes to succeed. In the evening, all of the girls came together to bond, have fun and reflect on the day.

G.L.O.W.  was an amazing experience that Girl Scouts Heart of Central California was proud to host. If you missed the conference this year, be on the lookout for G.L.O.W next year!

Girl Scout Award Highlights

Girl Scout Silver Award Ceremony, Girls Who Inspire Award Ceremony, bridging ceremonies, and Court of Awards—there are SO many Girl Scout accomplishments to celebrate this time of year. And we couldn't be more proud! Here are a few highlights...

This pic collage is from a recent Court of Awards Ceremony. The girls worked so hard during the cookie season and reached their cookie goal, so they wrote a letter to What's the Scoop? Ice Cream sharing their story and the Sacramento hop donated ice cream for their party.

The Girl Scout Silver Award Ceremony was held on June 7 at the Sacramento Convention Center. This year, 190 girls from GSHCC received their Silver Award... amazing!

On June 8, we held the Girls Who Inspire Award Ceremony at Crest Theatre, honoring girls who received the highest awards in Girl Scouting. This year, 52 girls received their Girl Scout Gold Award, 14 received their GSHCC Rose Award, and 20 girls received their Bridge to Girl Scout Adult Award. Great job, Girl Scouts!

Congratulations to all Girl Scouts who received an award or celebrated an accomplishment this year! And a big thank you to all the volunteers, advisers and parents who supported their Girl Scout and her journey.
