How to Be Part of Girl Scouts of the USA National Council Session Video!

Be Part of Girl Scouts of the USA National Council Session Video

As part of providing the most fulfilling, inspirational, and memorable experience possible we're going to create a Council Shout-Out video that will play during National Council Session. The session is all virtual this year, so there are several ways for involvement. Videos are due to GSUSA by October 4. 

This video will be seen by thousands nationally and will set the tone for the entire event. What will the Finished Video look like? The final video will be a photo montage of 112 Girl Scouts portraits, one from each council and from USAGSO. 

Girl Scouts are encouraged to find a creative, visual way to represent their council. It could be choice of background or holding an object that represents something special about your council. The 112 most creative, interesting and appealing photos will be chosen. 

Is this activity safe? 
Yes! You can make the video safely at home or outside while social distancing. 

What’s the dress code? 
You can choose to wear your Girl Scout uniform or you can dress to represent what you love about your Council. 

 What do I need to take the photo? 
All you need is a phone or camera and a stable place to put the phone HORIZONTALLY. Once you’ve taken the photo, you’ll need an internet connection to send the photo(s). What do I do once I’ve taken the photo? Send it to us! To be considered, you have to send us two things: 1) your full resolution photos and 2) a completed materials release, signed by your guardian

Who can participate? 
Any active Girl Scout can participate of any age, from Daisy to Ambassador. Parents are welcome to help behind the scenes. I’m Interested! 

What should I do? 
Dream up an interesting way to take a portrait of yourself while also representing your council. Think about what backgrounds, objects, props, and uniform elements can best represent your particular council. Find a bright room or spot outside, and take a HORIZONTAL shot of yourself standing about three feet away from your camera. Take as many photos as you want, then choose the best two (2) photos and send us those. 

How can my photo look awesome? 
We’ve included guidelines for taking great photos for this project. Please read them carefully. It’ll increase the chances your photo gets selected! How do I send the photos and signed release? Upload everything to the following link: https://bit.ly/2QncaDW

When are they due? 
Get your submissions in ASAP! The sooner we get your photos, the more likely we are to use it. All photos should be submitted by October 4th, 2020. What if I have a question or problem? Contact us! You can email Morgan, mrobinson@girlscouts.org
