GSUSA Needs Your Help to Celebrate Global Sisterhood

It’s time to celebrate the global sisterhood of Girl Scouting at National Council Session(NCS)! Would you like to be part of the opening? Since this is a virtual event, that can truly be possible. 

As part of providing the most fulfilling, inspirational, and memorable experience possible GSUSA is going to create a virtual flag processional video that will kickoff NCS. This video will represent the Flag Processional that is a time-honored tradition and officially marks the start of an in-person NCS.  It will be seen by thousands nationally and will set the tone for the entire event. 

The final video will be a photo montage of councils, USAGSO and others, each representing an assigned country which is a WAGGGS Member Organization. Any active Girl Scout can participate! 

GSCCC members interested, should research our Council assigned country, Cameroon, and then use their imagination in the design of the country’s flag, which will be held by the girl in the photo. 

Girls must follow instructions and submit to marcomm@gsccc.org by September 8. Be sure to send your photo permission form with the photo you send. ONLY send one photo per email along with the photo permission document.

Girls must be in full uniform. 

Find a bright room and set up a stable HORIZONTAL shot of the girl standing about three-five feet away from your camera. 

What do I need to take the photos? All you need is a phone or camera that shoots photos.  Be sure to shoot your photos HORIZONTALLY. Once you’ve taken them, you’ll need an internet connection to send the photos. 

 For any photo to be considered, you have to send us two things: a) the full resolution photo and b) a completed  photo release for each submission, signed by the girl’s parent or guardian. You can find this on our website's Forms page or click here.
