Shine On Project

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new Shine ON! project that challenges girls to decorate their school bathrooms with encouraging messages! 

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? The media tells girls and women that their value lies in their youth and beauty and not in their capacity as leaders. These negative messages lead to a drastic drop in girls’ confidence and prevents them from building healthy relationships with themselves and each other. Our girls deserve better!
The Shine On! Project is a creation of Girl Scouts Heart of the South and the Stand Beside Her Movement. The colorful flyers and graphics include positive messages for girls and women to remind them that the most amazing thing a girl can wear is her confidence. We encourage troops and groups to decorate girls’ bathrooms with the posters to make girls’ personal space at school more uplifting and enjoyable. Many of the designs are also available as SVG files for use with vinyl cutting machines for troops and groups wanting to take the effort to a larger level! Click HERE or the image above to download the vast array of Shine On! project collateral and full project instructions. We can't wait to see how you and your troops encourage others to SHINE ON!

Troop Video Challenge


Troops across the GSHS area are encouraged to create videos of themselves working on their Shine On! Project or other SBH Patch Program Activity and challenge other troops to do the same! 

Just like the highly successful troop challenge video from Troop 13351 in 2017 (click the thumbnail above to watch it!), videos 90 seconds or shorter will be featured in newsletters, emails, on both the GSHS and SBH Facebook pages and uploaded to the GSHS YouTube channel to encourage troops around the country to participate! Last year over 3,000 girls from Hawaii to New York saw the video and took the challenge!

Let YOUR troop be their inspiration this year! Troops completing a Shine On! Project or other SBH Patch Program Activity AND submitting a video will receive a FREE SBH Patch! And from October 22 to November 3 only, ALL troops can earn a free Stand Beside Her patch by completing a Shine On! Project, one of the suggested activities in the SBH Patch Program, or by doing an activity that supports girls and women. 

Has your troop already earned a Stand Beside Her patch? New patches are available (see artwork below) ! We encourage you to participate again and earn a new patch this year!


The FIRST GSHS troop to complete a 2018 Shine On! Project or other SBH Patch Program Activity AND send in a challenge video will win a FREE NIGHT at the Possibility Place* at the Memphis Leadership Center! 
(*To be scheduled based upon availability.)

Created by Girl Scouts Heart of the South, the National Stand Beside Her Movement is a call to action initiative to mentor, support and develop women and girls; to end comparison and competition and create more collaboration and support for one another.

The Stand Beside Her Movement culminates each year during October with National Side Beside Her Week to encourage people to commit to supporting girls and women in their lives, their home, their office and in their community. This week was chosen to commemorate Girl Scouts founder, Juliette Gordon Low’s birthday on October 31. Low’s life work was about supporting, developing and mentoring strong girls and women. This is most evident in the Girl Scout Law;

I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
