2021 First Day Patch Design Contest

Have you met last year’s First Day Patch Contest winner? Ella, a Daisy from troop 1422 in service unit 140 was voted the number one design in last year’s competition. Ella, along with lots of other submissions were received and narrowed down by council staff. Once the top 10 designs were selected the polls were open for fan-favorite voting. Her patch is now worn by around 2,000 Girl Scouts in our council!

Ella’s design received the most votes and was then turned into a real Girl Scout patch! Her submission featured a Girl Scout climbing a snow-capped mountain.

Every girl who renewed registration on the first day for membership year 2020 received Ella’s beautiful patch as an early-bird keepsake. This year the tradition continues with the 2021 First Day Patch Design Contest. 

Girl Scouts are highly encouraged to participate in this year’s contest. To enter click here to find the submission document.
