By now you’ve probably heard us talk about Spring Renewal. It’s our annual tradition of inviting our members to renew early and earn some amazing incentives. Since April 1, we’ve given out gift cards, t-shirts, tickets, and more. But we aren’t finished yet!
We still have THREE $100 Amazon gift cards to give away, 10% off adult apparel, service unit gift card incentives, GSWNY Program Cards, and the guaranteed win of SAGE Tuition Rewards.
Renewing in the next 16 days automatically enters you into the drawings and provides you with the SAGE points. Essentially, this is free money for college. Accepted at 400 colleges and universities around the United States, every girl who renews by May 31 receives 2,500 points (aka $2,500) and every co-leader and service unit manager who renews by then receives 3,500 points (aka $3,500). Don’t miss this incredible opportunity!
Beyond the incentives, renewing now gets you and your girl ready for the next year of Girl Scouts. When the new school year rolls around, it’s one less thing to worry about because you know you’re all set.
We’ve already talked about how Girl Scouting is a year-round experience, and now we have the best way to get started! Our Extended Year Membership gives you the fun of Girl Scouts the rest of this year AND the entire next year as well.
Regular membership is $25 per membership year, which runs October to September. Extended Year Membership gives you the rest of the 2018-2019 year AND the 2019-2020 year for only $35.
That means you can attend our exciting upcoming programs, go to camp, find your troop, and learn what it’s like being a Girl Scout ahead of the fall rush. You give yourself an edge now instead of rushing around during the busy back to school season.
For pre-k girls, this means they can join right now with Extended Year and have a whole summer of fun before the year kicks off in October. We even have a special Daisy Launch initiative, featuring activities and parties throughout the summer for our new Daisies.
Welcome to the second year of this exciting recruitment campaign! We’re so excited to do it again, especially with our fun new changes for 2019. There are two pieces to this contest: a Service Unit challenge and prize and a challenge to start 10 new troops.
Criteria for the Service Unit Challenge
Hold at least one new member recruitment event between January 7 and March 3, 2019.
We will choose one winner of our prize which is a Glow Dance Party Kit for you to use as a Service Unit event. Glow dances are increasingly popular, and with the kit it will be very easy to host an amazing event for your girls. The kit includes black lights, glow in the dark body paint, glow sticks, and everything else you would need! You can host the party as a standalone event, as part of a SUCO, or as a yearend celebration.
Please reach out to your SU’s CES for any support you will need including flyers or promotional materials.
Criteria for the New Troop Challenge
The goal of this challenge is to form 10 new troops across GSWNY between January 7 and March 3, 2019.
The first ten troops to form with at least five girls and two registered, trained, and approved co-leaders will receive a $50 gift certificate to the GSWNY shop or a retail store of their choosing.
Please promote this challenge at any recruitments you host during the Snow Much Fun period so new troops in your SU can be eligible. New troops will be added to the Opportunity Catalog prior to January 7 and they will be clearly marked for this promotion. We can give you the eligible troop numbers prior to any event you host if you’d like. Please reach out to your CES with questions.
Thank you for your help in adding new girls and adult members to Girl Scouts! Good luck!
