GSCCC Month of Military Child Contest


To celebrate locally, we're asking all GSCCC Girl Scouts who are military family dependents to submit an entry to win a Girl Scout gift certificate worth $20 that can be used in one of our GSCCC shops during a scheduled visit or pick up experience. There will be two winners - one for the art submission and one for the essay submission. Winners will be spotlighted on our social media. 

Girl Scout Daisies, Brownies & Juniors  - Create a drawing or other piece of art that portrays parent (s) at work, as you know it. Juniors, do the same but add a paragraph detailing what is taking place in the drawing/art. 
Girl Scout Cadettes, Seniors & Ambassadors - Write at least a 600 word essay about an experience you had as a military child - perhaps overseas, participating in a special program or why you are proud to be a military child. 

Artwork and essays should be sent to

Deadline to submit is April 30, 2021 at 11:59 PM.
