In an age when virtual reality is rapidly replacing real experiences, girls need to breath fresh air and play in green spaces more than ever. Girl Scouts will connect with the natural world as they participate in hands-on, outdoor learning through the Memphis Botanic Garden Fun Patch Program. Girls just need to print off the Fun Patch Check-off Sheet and head to the 96-acre property. It will take a minimum of 2 hours to complete and there are special rate available for Girl Scouts. The Memphis Botanic Garden Patch can be purchased at the Memphis Trefoil Trunk council shop.
Why earn the CEO Patch?
The CEO Patch, named for the work of the Chief Executive Officer, is seen in the public eye as a premier representation of the Girl Scout community. While earning the CEO Patch, girls learn the importance of positive recognition in her community and the media.
How do I earn my CEO Patch?
The CEO Patch is earned by completing any act that raises recognition for the mission of Girl Scouts. Recognition can be earned at school, church, on social networking sites, in the media, or any other avenue in which the act is made known to the public.
What it is like to be a CEO?
Here are some of the things you can do to earn your CEO Patch:
- Have your mayor sign a Girl Scout proclamation
- Submit an article to your local newspaper about a community service project
- Create a Girl Scout poster to hang at your local library
- Organize a Girl Scout Sunday/ Sabbath event at your church
- Talk to community leaders about what you’re learning in Girl Scouts and how they can support your troop.
To receive the CEO Patch girls must submit their activities, pictures and detailed information online.
After you earn your CEO Patch…
Every girl earning the CEO Patch will be invited to attend a “CEO Meet and Greet” reception! At the reception she’ll have a Meet & Greet with the CEO, participate in Girl Scout focus groups, and meet other CEO Patch recipients from around the council.
And, one lucky Girl Scout will be selected to be “CEO for a Day” where she’ll get to have a one-on-one meeting with the CEO and enjoy a day at the council.
