Girl Scouts Centennial Commemorative Coin Act

The Girl Scouts Centennial Commemorative Coin Act will direct the U.S. Mint to issue 350,000 Commemorative Coins in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. This legislation recognizes the achievements of the Girl Scouts and the 50 million alumnae across the nation whose lives have been influenced through Girl Scouting. Enactment of this legislation will support Girl Scout programs across the country. Congress approves only two coins each year, we have aggressive competition, and for this to pass we will need 290 House cosponsors and 67 Senate cosponsors. Our goal is to reach these numbers by September 2009.

Click here and you will be led to a tool on our website that will generate a letter to your Member of Congress, asking that they support the Girl Scout Commemorative Coin bill. We urge you to take action today and invite others to do so as well.
