Be the Next R.E.A.L. Girl!

There is still time to be the next Justine Magazine/Girl Scouts R.E.A.L. Girl! The deadline for entries is March 25, 2011, which gives all Girl Scouts plenty of time to get their entry forms filled out and mailed in! Entry forms are available here.

The R.E.A.L. Girl contest, which is open only to current Girl Scout members ages 13 to 19, will conclude in April 2011 with the winner appearing on the front cover of Justine Magazine. This is the second year for the R.E.A.L. Girl contest. Last year’s winner, Hosanna Kabakoro from Idaho, was featured on the April/May 2010 cover and in a six-page Justine fashion spread. Also a 2009 Girl Scout National Young Woman of Distinction, Kabakoro founded 2-Way Street to Empower, aimed at enabling and encouraging refugee and at-risk immigrant youth to develop a sense of community identity in the United States.
