It’s Snow Much Fun to be a Girl Scout! 2018 Service Unit Recruitment Contest

Instead of letting the winter weather cool us down, we’re embracing the fact that it’s ‘snow’ much fun to be a Girl Scout! Now through March 2, the Girl Scouts of Western New York Council is holding a recruitment contest for our service units!


Snow Much Fun Recruitment Contest updated FINAL (002)

The rules are simple – plan a service unit recruitment or bring-a-friend event through March 2 and you’re automatically entered for a chance to win a $200 GSWNY shop certificate or store gift card. The best part? You can hold as many events as you’d like and receive an additional entry for each one! The winner will be selected at random and announced on March 5.

The key is to fill out this form for your entry in the contest > Snow Much Fun Recruitment Contest Form.

Even better – new troops can win as well! The first 10 new troops formed (with five new, registered girls and two registered, approved, and trained co-leaders) will win a $50 GSWNY shop gift certificate.

Let’s beat the winter blues and show more girls why Girl Scouts is the right organization for them!
