Girl Voices 2014 Survey Winners!

Congratulations to Evelyn G on winning a free week of Summer Camp in the Girl Voices Survey drawing!


Congratulations Isabelle M, Samantha W, Caitlyn F and Jonee L on winning $25 gift certificates in the Girl Voices survey drawing.



Girl Voices is a national survey that lets girls tell us about their Girl Scout experiences.  It's not too late to participate. Simply visit www.girlscoutvoices.org to register to be a part of the 2015 GSCCC Girl Voices survey panel. Complete the Girl Voices survey (A separate survey invitation will be sent at that time to those members who have registered). A second Girl Voices Survey will be sent in July 2015. These two surveys will help us to measure how girls have achieved the 15 outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. 


Each girl who joins the Girl Voices survey panel and completes the end of the year survey will be eligible for this free patch.

Let Your Voice be Heard with GIRL VOICES!




Let YOUR VOICE be heard with GIRL VOICES…and get this FREE PATCH !



Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast is inviting Girl Scout members to use our online survey system to tell us about their Girl Scout experiences. Feedback will help us better understand how Girl Scouting is benefiting girls and how we can make their experiences even better!

There are two easy steps to participate:

Step 1: Complete the Registration Survey to join the Girl Scout Voices survey community at
www.girlscoutvoices.org (Girls under the age of 13 will need parent/guardian permission which is included as part of the registration).
 
Step 2: Complete the Girl Voices survey (A separate survey invitation will be sent at that time to those members who have registered). A second Girl Voices Survey will be sent in July 2015. These two surveys will help us to measure how girls have achieved the 15 outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Adults, we need your help to encourage girls to register – and specifically to help girls under the age of 13 complete the registration survey.

Please note, for all research surveys from Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, you can be assured of the following:

Responses will remain completely confidential. Member names will not appear on the surveys. Council staff, troop leaders, and certainly other girls – will not know how members responded. All survey data will be processed and stored in a secure environment. These surveys are solely for research purposes related to Girl Scouts of the USA. Girls will not be marketed to, solicited or exposed to any form of advertisement as a result of participating in the series of surveys.

Patches will be available at the GSCCC shops. Proof of completion of the survey will be required.

Your cookie booth customers could win a FREE CASE OF COOKIES and your troop could win a $100 Council shop credit!  Display this poster at your booth sales and ask customers to fill out a ticket to win a free case of cookies. Both the poster and the tickets will be provided to your troop at cookie delivery the weekend of February 20-22, 2015. Return the tickets to Council and we’ll draw winners every Friday. The troop that turns in the most tickets per registered selling girl in their troop will win one of seven Council shop gift cards valued between $25 and $100. We will award one $100 gift card, two $50 gift cards and four $25 gift cards.


BLING YOUR BOOTH!
Wouldn't it be awesome to have cookie customers lined up around the block waiting to get to your Girl Scout Cookie booth? You can make it happen—and your troop could be one of six to win $500!

It's simple: just grab your imagination, get crafty, and Bling Your Booth! See Details!

Remember: it's all about votes. Share your photo entry with your friends and family to get their support. And don't forget, you need to be 13 or older to upload your own entry. If you're younger than 13, just get some help from a volunteer, parent, or other adult you trust.
