Why we’re here: The #GSdifference

Fact: The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is time-tested and backed up by data. The longer she’s in Girl Scouts, the more likely she is to enjoy life satisfaction later on. 📊 Read more about the long term benefits of being a Girl Scout.

So, we have the facts, but what we’re wondering is this:
What has been the #GSdifference in YOUR Girl Scout’s life?

#GSdifference Contest

From April 15-May 31, Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is running a social media contest for GSWPA Girl Scouts who joined/renewed for the 2021-2022 Girl Scout year.

Prize: Three participating GSWPA Girl Scouts will be chosen at random to win a prize pack. 😲 And winners will be featured with GSWPA—our blog, our Facebook, and more!

It’s easy to play!
  1. Renew or join for the 2021-2022 Girl Scout year.
  2. Follow us on social media (Facebook, Instagram & Twitter) and keep an eye out for ANY post that contains #GSdifference.
  3. Comment on the post.
    • Let us know that you (or your girl) is renewed/joined and ready to go for the next year of adventures.

    • Tag a friend who should participate too!
  4. Share the post from your account.
An example:

“Julia is renewed for next year! The opportunities she has had as a Girl Scout have pushed her out of her comfort zone and taught her to always try. She went from a shy girl at a cookie booth to charging the climbing tower at camp!

@Stacey Parker comment to win!”
