Florida Girl Scouts Complete MEdia Program

In Florida, the Bloomdale Patch reports that Girl Scouts of West Central Florida will host a celebration for 50 Girl Scout Cadettes in grades six to eight who recently completed MEdia, part of the It’s Your Story – Tell It! journey from Girl Scouts of the USA and Dove. Over the past six months, the group of Girl Scout Cadettes from three troops in Clearwater, West Tampa and Riverview attended myriad events and completed projects at their troop meetings as part of the MEdia journey from It's Your Story—Tell It!

It's Your Story—Tell It! uses a storytelling theme in a fun and relevant way for girls to better understand themselves and their potential. Throughout the journey, girls looked for the “ME” in media and learned how they can shape media – for themselves, their communities and the world.

The MEdia journey includes three Leadership Awards; the Monitor Award - Cadettes have taken stock of media in their world and the influence it has, the Influence Award - Cadettes understand the importance of having media reflect the realities of their world and the Cultivate Award - Cadettes have made a personal commitment to cultivate a new perspective on media.
