A Bridge to Remember

On Saturday, May 11, 2019, GSUSA along with Girl Scout Central hosted two very special multi-level bridging ceremonies at the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum to celebrate National Bridging Week. Here are a few highlights from this epic weekend!

Girl Scouts from all levels eagerly checked in.
For some Girl Scouts this was their last time bridging.
Bridging Girl Scouts buzzed with excitement...
while color guards diligently rehearsed their very important role.
Despite the chilly weather, family members showed up with a smile.
As the ceremony began, Girl Scouts tuned in intently.

Gold Award Girl Scout Isabella kicked off the ceremony with an inspiring speech about her Girl Scout Journey and how it's helped her build the confidence she needed to take-on her grand challenge raising mental health and teen suicide awareness. 

GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo encouraged girls to be what they want and to follow their dreams because her dream to become a rocket scientist came true thanks to Girl Scouts"My patch is my story." 
At the end of each ceremony Girl Scouts gathered to take a few fun pictures.
Sylvia called all the girls to strike a power pose, and this was the result. NEVER underestimate the power of G.I.R.L.!
Once the ceremonies ended Girl Scouts explored the Intrepid Museum to learn about all the amazing contributions women have made to sea, air, and space!

Congratulations to all the Girl Scouts who advanced to a higher level on National Bridging Week, you are a source of power, hope, and inspiration for the future!
