Looking for “star” Girl Scouts


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As of 10/8/2012 at 10 a.m.: This opportunity is now FULL. If you are not registered for a training session yet, you will have to wait until next fall to register for the program.

This is one of my favorite times of the year! That’s because one of my favorite parts of my job is working with girls to discover how they can tell their Girl Scout story and serve as Media Stars for Girl Scouts of Colorado.

What is a Media Star? Before the Cookie Program each January, Girl Scouts of Colorado trains girls from all areas of the state to be Media Stars to help deliver the excitement (or do interviews) about cookie time with area TV and radio stations, as well as newspapers. These spokesgirls will help with other Girl Scouts of Colorado media interviews throughout the year too. Here are just some of the media interviews the girls participated in during last year’s Cookie Program.

If you know a girl in 4th grade and above that dreams about being a star, then we want to train them to be a Girl Scouts of Colorado Media Star. (Note: From time to time we do need younger girls to help out with media interviews.)

How to get involved

All girls who want to serve as Media Stars for Girl Scouts of Colorado in 2012/2013 will be asked to participate in an individual, web-based training session at a time that works for them in December 2012. During this training, girls will learn everything needed to be a successful Media Star. Even if you have participated in this program before, you must be trained each year if you want to participate in the program again. We like to get as many “new” girls involved in this program as possible each year.

This is a very popular program, and space for this year’s program is FULL. Reservations were taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are not registered for a training session, you will have to wait until next fall to  participate. Thank you!  

I look forward to working with our 2012/2103 Girl Scouts of Colorado Media Stars!
