2012 The Girl Scout Way

2012 marked the Year of the Girl and what a year it was! As we look forward to 2013 and the start of the next century of Girl Scouting, we'd like to take a moment to reflect of our accomplishments and celebrations from 2012 - all made possible by our amazing volunteers, donors, and of course our girls.

In 2012:
Girl Scouts had one of the most successful cookie sales ever! The 2012 cookie sale provided more than 10,000 girls with life skills and leadership opportunities.  And thanks to special donations from Station Casinos and Sam's Town, Girl Scouts' after-school program were expanded providing services to more than 1,000 girls throughout southern Nevada.

We Rocked the Dam with more than 1,000 Girl Scouts participating in a bridging ceremony across Hoover Dam.

The Las Vegas 51s honored our birthday with a whole game dedicated to Girl Scouts - including Girl Scout inspired jerseys and fireworks.

We celebrated a World of Girls with more than 3,000 individuals attending our 100th birthday bash/expo Cashman Center.

And as we celebrated all of the amazing accomplishments of the first 100 years of Girl Scouts, our girls continue to amaze us with more! Our girls traveled the world; gave service to those in need; and honed their leadership skills in important areas such as STEM, financial literacy, environmental issues, and healthy living. Our girls are truly changing the world. Join us in making 2013 just as special.

Kindest Regards,

Emily Smith
Chief Marketing & Development Officer
Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada
