It's Your Story – Tell It!

Jun 08, 2010 Posted in Newsroom, Press Releases

Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania is sponsoring a girls’ video contest because we know girls and the creative ways they can use technology.

All members in grades K-12 may participate. Simply select from one of the five themes below, grab your camera and friends then start shooting.


“Here’s Where I Camp Like a Girl” – shoot a video tour of one of our resident camps this summer (3-10 minutes)

“It’s a Girl’s Life” – tell us about something amazing you’ve done in Girl Scouts (while girls can combine various stories into one video, please keep each story to 30-45 seconds each)

“Top 10 Reasons to be a Girl Scout” – use quick clips totaling 60 seconds to tell us why you and your friends are in Girl Scouts or why other girls should join

“My Inspiration” – tell us about a Girl Scout leader, volunteer or mentor who helped you build courage, confidence and character (1-3 minutes)

“One Smart Cookie” – use video to tell or show what you’ve learned or done through participation in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and how its prepared you to become a future business woman (1-3 minutes)

Send DVD copies of your video to: GSWPA, 2010 Video Contest, 30 Isabella Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15212 by Friday, October 1, 2010. Be sure to include the names of everyone who participated in the video production and get photo releases from all girls and adults who are involved. Video's with the most hits in each category will receive $100 gift card or certificate.

All videos submitted will become the property of Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania and may be used for council promotions in the upcoming year.
