Apply: National Girl Innovator

There are Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors across the country who truly stand out and show their dedication to Girl Scouting through their actions and attitude. Members of the National Girl Innovators are exemplary Girl Scouts who share a common interest in making this organization better for their sister Girl Scouts!

Each girl nominee should be organized, complete tasks efficiently, and not have to be asked twice. She should have a finger on the pulse of youth culture and have ideas about how to keep Girl Scouts modern and current. She is the kind of person who continuously brings energy and positivity to your troop. She is able to work with adults to communicate the voices of her peers. In other words: she is a girl of the people!
In group settings, she is able to share her opinions without hesitation but recognizes the best moments to sit back and listen. Does she always try to include other girls in order to hear everyone’s opinion? She brings new ideas to the table and challenges other Girl Scouts to broaden their horizons. She constantly keeps everyone up to date on current events and trends. Do you learn from her as much as she learns from you?
If you have a girl in mind that embodies the principles of Girl Scouts, nominate her for this position!
