Girl Scouts have many wow-worthy stories to share! Use our tools to
connect with your local media and promote recruitment events, or how
Girl Scouts are taking action, in your neighborhood. Please note,
GSUSA handles all national media outreach and GSK staff reaches out to
all major regional TV and radio. Focus on your local neighborhood
newspapers and radio stations to avoid overlapping outreach. If you
wish to contact other media, please coordinate with Megan
Bennett to avoid causing confusion for our media friends or
Be brief and to-the-point. Editors are busy people!
Be specific with times, dates and details.
Tell the editor why including your submission would benefit
If there is a specific section in the publication
that your submission would fit well in, suggest your story be placed
in it. You’ll earn brownie points by signaling you follow their publication.
Include a quality photograph (not fuzzy or grainy) that is
interesting to look at and depicts the go-getter, innovator,
risk-taker and leader spirit.
Girls doing activities, working together as a troop, or experiencing
an outdoor adventure are all great photo ops.
Do not include attachments because it is common for messages
with attachments from unknown sources to be filtered into junk mail.
Instead, provide images using a file sharing tool like dropbox.com.
Spelling and grammar matter! Some editors might discount the
credibility of your submission if it has excessive errors.
Don’t forget to include your contact info. Editors may want
further information about your submission.
Hi, my name is Juliette Low, and I am a volunteer for Girl Scouts of
Kentuckiana. I would like to share some of the amazing work that Girl
Scouts are doing right here in Owensboro!
that some boys and girls will go without Christmas presents this year,
Brownie Troop 0000 decided to organize a toy drive. The drive was held
outside of Kroger on Saturday, December 9. The girls collected almost
70 toys and donated them to Toys for Tots.
