Girl Scouts – Be River Valleys’ Next Patch Design Star

Hey Girl Scouts – We need your help designing the Centennial Day of Service patch. If you want to try your hand at a design, follow these guidelines:

The Patch Design Must Be:

  • Hand drawn, not computer created
  • Completed in either colored pencils or fine tipped markers
  • Creative (you can use up to 9 different colors)
  • Created on the patch submission form, printed, and sent to River Valleys via mail or color scanned copy
  • Representative of River Valleys’ Centennial Day of Service and include the following words:
    • River Valleys or GSRV
    • Centennial Take Action
    • October 13, 2012 or 10.13.12 or 10/13/12
    • 3m

What is the Centennial Day of Service?

On October 13th, 2012 River Valleys’ Girl Scouts and volunteers will participate in the largest single-day clean up ever in River Valleys’ history! Together we are going to clean-up loose dirt and leaves from sewer grates, boat launches, city parks, parking lots around neighborhood schools, local stores, or any other kind of public space, by raking, sweeping, bagging and leaves that fall on paved surface and pile up.

This project will decrease the algae growth in local lakes, streams, rivers and ponds. Can you believe that on one day 54,000 people, girls and adults, will all be doing the same project all around our council in their local communities? River Valleys’ will create a lasting impact!

If you want to design the patch for this awesome project, the final submissions are due November 15, 2011. After this deadline, the top 20 designs will be posted online for everyone to vote on their favorite!
