Weekend Run-Down

Good Morning and welcome to another edition of Weekend Run-Down:
  • As reported in The Tampa Tribune, The Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida and Highlands County Girl Scouts would like to thank several local businesses for their contribution of prizes to the 6th Annual "Cindy's Girl Scout Cookie Eating Contest" that was recently held at the Highlands County Fair.
  • NBC Cox Local News in Omaha reports that local girl scouts discovered you don't have to be a big organization to make a big impact.
  • In New York, Girl Scouts brought some Sunday cheer to residents of a Niagara County health care facility. Check it out here!
  • As the Contra Costa Times is reporting, Jaime Richards is one Girl Scout who's driven to achieve. According to the report, it is a story with two themes: (1) The classy courage of an incredible young woman. (2) What schools can learn from the Girl Scouts. Awesome!
  • Even more news outlets - MSNBC, NewsBusters, Stuff and many more - are covering our recent Body Image Survey. Previously blogged about here.
  • NBC 2 KTUU in Anchorage, AK, is reporting that more than 700 girls were at the Girl Scouts of Alaska's Women of Science and Technology Day.
