Summer Reading

World Thinking Day Award

Each year on February 22, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. It is a special day in the Girl Scout year when we remember we are part of a worldwide movement.

The 2019 World Thinking Day Theme is Leadership! This year, we'll celebrate the different ways in which Girl Scouts and their sister Girl Guides become leaders and develop the power to bring the change they want to see in the world. Let's celebrate, learn about and participate in all of the amazing ways our global movement has impacted each of us in our communities.

The World Thinking Day award is an Official Award and therefore it may be worn on the front of the Official Uniform sash or vest and placed where other earned badges are worn.
