Competition & STEM Program Opportunity for Girls
Girl Scouts of the USA is proud to be an outreach partner with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and E-Line Media to introduce the second annual National STEM Video Game Challenge open to Girl Scouts! This challenge invites game makers to show their passion for playing and making video games and aims to motivate children's interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Up for grabs is almost $200,000 in cash and prizes, with multiple ways to win! The entry period is open through March 12th, 2012. Finalists will be selected by a distinguished panel of judges and winners will be announced in the spring of 2012 at a major public event.
For more information on how Girl Scouts can enter the Youth Prize competition (middle school & high school) look here!
Challenges like this support Girl Scouts’ already strong commitment to STEM activities that are relevant to everyday life. Whether they're discovering how a car's engine runs, becoming math whizzes, or learning about careers in STEM fields, girls are moving forward into the future. Please look here for more information on all of our science offerings.

This challenge also compliments the Entertainment Technology Badge, where girls can dig into video game development! If you have girls earning this badge, encourage them to enter the STEM Video Challenge as well! Contact pmullins@girlscoutsccc.org with questions.

Reflections from National Convention

Marcy Reed here with some reflections on GSUSA’s 52nd Convention held in Houston last week. While there was much celebration of the first 100 years of Girl Scouts, with many inspirational speakers – both girls and adults – recounting what scouting has meant in their lives, we spent much of our time looking forward because that’s what Girl Scouts do – we shape the future. I'm excited about 2012 being named "The Year of the Girl" because after all isn't that what it's all about?! Stay tuned for more reflections from the delegates, staff, and other volunteers who attended convention. I am Marcy Reed and I am a Girl Scout!
